Hello all you fabulous glass people! I hope this message finds you all happy, healthy and being creative!
We had our state meeting on October 25 and elected our board members for 2021. A big thank you goes out to Sue Merritt as our new Vice President, Sue Bracknell our new Secretary, Lesley Kelly our continuing Treasurer, and Lyn Kennison, as President. Thank you all for stepping up. A big thank you also goes out to Carlyne Lynch for all her hard work as the Web Director, Margie Rieff, for her work as Membership Chair, Linda Gerrard, Sponsorship Chair, Sharon Dunham, for the Newsletter, Charlene Fort, Communications Chair, Mitzi Kugler as past President, Suzanne Tyler for being the Secretary, and Greta Schneider for her work as Vice President. Everyone has worked hard this year to keep the guild going. Thank you!
At the state meeting, Karen Seymour presented a video talking about using different firing schedules to get different results. It was very informative and can be watched by going to the website under videos.
The board is constantly working on bringing new events, videos, and playdates for people to learn and grow in their glass creations. If you have an idea for a new playdate, something to present at the general meetings, or for making a video, please join us at the board meetings and talk to us about it. We welcome new ideas. Please check the calendar on the website frequently to see when Zoom events will be happening.
The new website is almost ready to launch. By early 2021 it should be up and running. When it is, you will receive a reminder to renew your membership, if it is due. It will be easy to do it on the website.
Take care of yourselves, stay creative and enjoy the holidays!
