Today, we met at Pat Bijwaard's house, and she provided both a wonderful lunch and a wonderful program on delft tiles.
Among her tiles are these in her kitchen:
At most meetings, we have a program by an artist, craftsperson, or author. Today, we discussed possible programs for next year. We will soon contact the people suggested and have our program list in a month or two.
We also selected the recipient of our scholarship from a handful of applicants. Because I knew one of the applicants, I recused myself from voting. However, the vote by the others in attendance was unanimous: Amy Tate of Boones Mill is the winner of our $100 scholarship to be used for incidentals. She attends Hollins University in the Horizon program.
