Minutes of Oct. 6, 2010

The October meeting of the GCWS was held in the lovely auditorium at Evergreen Retirement Center. President Eileen Hulsman called the meeting to order. She thanked the "Evergreen Group" of Joan Ammerman, Carolyn Gesteland, Ginny Mooney - the three that helped put the show and luncheon together. She also thanked those that helped hang the show, did registration, and completed all the jobs that needed to be done so that the meeting could be held at Evergreen. Thanks to Marilyn Bishop for all of her work on publicity. We even had TV coverage!

Don't forget that our next meeting will be the second Wednesday of November, on the 10th, and the speaker will be Nancy Neville.

A clipboard was passed around for sign up to bring something for our Christmas buffet.

President Hulsman then awards the prize money for the winners of the show as follows -
1st Place - Sandy Maudlin $250
2nd Place - Taylor Bush $100
3rd Place - Joan Ammerman $50
Honorable mentions were Susan Grogan, Larry Sparks, and Sam Hollingsworth.

There were several handouts for workshop info.

Sharon Cranston and Jenny Meyers from Evergreen were introduced. They welcomed us to the facility and complimented us on our paintings.

Nancy Wisely introduced Barbara Smucker, who talked about making paintings that tell stories. After her talk, we were treated to a luncheon provided by Evergreen.
