ReceptionThe Reception, while not as well attended as some of our other events have been, went smoothly. The Taft High School Culinary program was onsite and did a very professional job of presenting their creations and managing the cleanup.  We’d like to have them cater more of our events as their schedule allows.
Electrician & Donation

 

Thank you!  Our sincerest thanks to the ASA member that made the generous donation to the Mosaic Guild to help them have a track light installed above their display wall at the front of the ASA classroom.  It’s our members that make the ASA the successful organization that it is!
Old Business
Gallery HostingMore gallery hosts are still needed on weekend days when no classes are in session.  The signup sheet is on the refrigerator in the ASA kitchen.  Members are encouraged to work on their art projects while they are in the classroom and to come with a friend or another ASA member if that will make them more comfortable.
