July 10 Workshop
Pat Scribner will present an original design to make place mats or a table runner. Full instructions follow.
Our 20th year Anniversary Celebration will be on October 2, 2021 at the Plantation in Crystal River. The address is 9301 W. Fort Island Trail, Crystal River Florida 34429. We will enjoy a river cruise followed by a hot lunch buffet in the party room. The river cruise starts at 11:00 am SHARP!
Please report to the Adventure Center no later than 10:45 am.. You don’t want to miss the boat. After the boat ride, we have 15 minutes to walk to the party room and be seated. The party room is close, so fifteen minutes should be plenty of time. I need confirmation of your attendance no later than September 11th. Sign up using the “Count me in” button on our website. In celebration of our 20th Anniversary, the Manatee Haven Decorative Artists will provide the party free of charge to our members. Please call me if you have questions, Sandy Mihalus 352 688-4106
2021 Philanthropic Project
Our philanthropic project for this year is a donation of a painted Christmas ornament to K-9 Partners for Patriots. The organization provides dogs who are trained to assist veterans in times of stress. The veterans have suffered mental disabilities as a result of wartime experiences. The organization is funded by donations.
The ornaments we paint will decorate their Christmas tree and be presented to each veteran at their Christmas party. The theme is either patriotic or dogs, or both.
Please bring unpainted ornaments to our July meeting, and if possible, a pattern for it also. I need to know how many ornaments we have. We will paint ornaments in September. I have more information to share in the next few months, and I know we are going to have a great time! Pat Landry brought the cutest ornaments to the June meeting to inspire us. Thanks Pat.
