October Newsletter

Renew memberships starting this month. I have a new idea…let’s make membership $5 for an email-only newsletter, $10 if you need the newsletter mailed. ($5 per member is donated to the library.) See you Thursday!

Recap of September Meeting (September 25, 2008)
I heard through the grapevine that everyone had a great time with Lois and her Adirondack color wash. Please bring your samples as I’m anxious to see them! Check out this link for some project ideas using the sprays:

October Meeting (October 30, 2008)
It’s Laura Murray Movie Night. Theresa will bring her DVDs.

Announcements and Reminders
December 4th will be our offsite Christmas party at 6:30 at the Out-O-Town Club in Kaukauna. The address is N2161 Town Club Rd, Kaukauna, and the phone number is (920) 766-0414. Julie will make a group reservation for us, so RSVP to her at the October meeting or by phone.

· Take exit 150 for County Hwy J toward Kaukauna
· Take County Rd J south for 0.1 mi
· Turn left at County Rd OO (frontage road)
· Travel 1.3 mi, then take a slight right at Town Club Rd

We’ll have our famous White Elephant gift exchange. Remember, the focus is more on giving a laugh than getting a gift! Ideally, you’ll find something in the garage or basement, but if you must shop, $5 is the limit. New this year: I’ll bring a prize for the GIVER of the White Elephant deemed “most ridiculous” by popular vote.
