We begin every year with a Brunch served by our new Club Officers, a Show and Tale, and our Business Meeting. It is a treat to see everyone again, tell about and show a special piece and make plans select for the New Year. I was inspired by the pieces presented. Dottie had an imaginative assortment of gourds. Members brought wonderful pieces to show, beautifully painted memory boxes, as well as pieces for us to select as a class project. But, Marianne Sydenstricker captured our hearts with pieces painted by her students who are Alzheimer’s patients. Marianne is one of only two artists in our State who teaches this type of class.
