April Notes & Deadlines

Here is some info for those of you who missed our April meeting:
(1) We must elect officers at our next (May 8) meeting. And since we are switching our meeting days back to Wednesdays next Fall, Frank Quinn will be stepping down and Kathy Hutchinson has agreed to return as president -- unless somebody else wants to vie for the position. Also stepping down after 3 years as our secretary is Haydi Hurley. But she plans to remain active and help whoever replaces her. Karole Nicholson, our intrepid demonstrator-scheduler will also be stepping down. To replace her might require two volunteers. Finally, we are hoping to find one or more volunteers to arrange for our monthly refreshments, a sort of "Martha Stewart Committee". We hope you will consider getting involved in one of these positions and adding new blood to our activities. Afterall, we are only as good as our members.
(2) For those who participated in our exhibition at the Walpole Library, you can pick up your art (or ask someone to do it for you) on Monday April 30, 4-7 pm. Thanks to all who participated in the new Library's first show. The official dedication of the new building is Saturday, April 28, 10:30 am. All are invited.
(3) Every year the Art Association awards 2 scholarships under the name of David Withers, an active member who passed away about 11 years ago. One scholarship of $600 is awarded to a graduating student from Foxboro High School who is pursuing further education in the visual arts. The other is for $200 which is awarded to an active member for a workshop or similar educational experience. The deadline for both applications is April 30. The application should be mailed to our Association, PO Box 440, Foxboro, MA 02035. The recipients will be announced at our next meeting, May 8. Please try to attend. After May, our next meeting will be in September.
