What I Did Last Summer,
An enthusiastic group of calligraphers and friends gathered once again to celebrate the beginning of a new year. President Diane Reiter and her capable board have organized an exciting season of meetings and workshops. It was especially wonderful to welcome back some members we haven’t seen for a while.

The program, sharing what we’d done since we got together in June, reminded us of how varied our artistic experiences are and how nice it can be to take time to show each other what we’ve done. Just about everyone who came to the meeting  had something to show from work done at the internatioal calligraphy conference near St. Louis to a small group who had met in one friend’s backyard. We saw a complete professional wedding package and a clever pen rest, and when theevening was over, we left knowing that this was going to be another great year.
