Notice to Members

LPAG needs volunteers to join the Board. Experience is not necessary. Time commitment - moderate to minimal. The Board meets monthly and oversees four events a year. If you want to serve the Guild and bring new ideas to the membership, this is the place. Offices open: Vice-President, Treasurer, Recording Secretary. Tina Porter returns as President, and Jean Rittenberg has agreed to stay on as Corresponding Secretary. The New Board will be introduced at the December General Meeting. Contact Tina Porter on 937 6295 for more info or to offer your services.

SPECIAL EVENT: After the General Meeting, Candace Vosburg will be conducting a ceramic workshop. Participants will carve a design in a linoblock, then use the designs (or a block designed by Candace) to create a ceramic wall pocket (useful for everything from plants to pens!). Candy will glaze and fire the pieces, which will be returned to the artist when complete. Deadline to register is 2 February. Cost $15. To sign up, email Michael Corob at
