Last Meeting until September

Today the Roanoke Valley Branch of the National League of American Pen Women held our last meeting of the season. We'll resume our meetings on September 3, at our usual meeting place—the Daily Grind in Salem.

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.

I just want to thank you for the wonderful scholarship! Winning this has made my summer, and I am so grateful. I will use the money towards the purchase of my textbooks this fall. I look forward to meeting each and everyone of you at a future meeting. Thank you so very much!
