A very special event at the reception recognized Patt Miller and Lisabet Wilson, two founding and long-time members of SDFC, as “San Diego Fellow Calligraphers Honorary Member with all rights and privileges pertaining.” President Diane Reiter read the proclamations as Immediate Past President Jacqueline Lacey displayed the beautiful certificates calligraphed by Barbara Close.
A very surprised Patt Miller accepted her certificate along with flowers from Past President Donna Young.
There were few dry eyes when Lisabet Wilson’s proclamation was read. We are all grateful to Diane and Jacqueline for having presented the certificate to Lisabet earlier this summer so she would know the high esteem in which she is held. We lost Lisabet to cancer on September 1, but her gentle humor, kindness, respect, intellectual curiosity, and inspiration will be remembered as much as her presence will be missed.
