We had a wonderful Old West show this year, and it was all
due to the generosity and diligence of the members who volunteered. A show like
this simply is not put on in a vacuum. Without the hard work by our members, it
wouldn’t have happened. Jackie stepped in as show chair and everything was
organized so that it ran smoothly. Glynmary, as always, did a great job
organizing and serving the food for the reception. Alice had all the ribbons
and prizes ready to be handed out, and she did a great job on the show catalog.
Julianne coordinated the schedule for sitting the show and reminding those of
us when we had agreed to sit and we didn’t have a single time when the show
doors had to stay shut because no one was there to sit the show. Our members
who turned out to help with the set up, and hang the show really contributed to how well the
show looked. So, thank you, to all of you.
We did need more help in taking down the standards. I want
to extend a great big thank you to Jim Sutton and Susan Asadoor’s two young pre-teenage
boys for taking down the standards and loading them into the trailer. They were
great, but I’m sure they would have appreciated more help. Hope we can do
better with this aspect of the show this fall.
We’ve got some great stuff coming up next month; don’t
forget to bring your painting, drawing or photography materials to our next
meeting. We will have a live model (a guy this time) and two still life set ups
for those of you who don’t want to draw figures. See you there!
