GCWS Meeting Highlights

I've been working, off and on, all day on the minutes for the Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society. My neck is tense and I have to be careful not to stay on the computer too long so...just wanted to share the photos of Sandy receiving her plaque and with her cake. We gave her a grand "send-off" as our president for the past 3 years and welcomed our new president in. Sandy will remain a member, of course, and will always be around to encourage and help us out.

(Once I get the minutes done, reviewed for typos and such, and sent to Sandy, she'll put the whole thing on her blog.) Several of the members have been, or are, students of Sandy and many stood and shared their words about her. I know she was surprised and beaming!

If it weren't for Sandy, I wouldn't even be a member of the watercolor society and wouldn't have benefited from all that membership has brought me. She kept asking, "Are you coming to the next meeting? We're meeting Wednesday, are you going to attend?" and finally I just had to give in. Glad I did!

(The cake was delicious!!! Thanks, Bonnie, for getting that done and thanks to Bonnie's daughter who decorated it for us.)
