Arts and Crafts Fair at the Corn Festival – Our Arts and Crafts Fair was a success. We had many nice raffle prizes. The Raffle earned $784 and the Bake Sale received $315.75. Due to heavy rains a couple of days prior to the Festival, the large rides had to be cancelled. There was too much mud. Consequently attendance was down somewhat.
Membership Drive of 2018 – 2019 – Our annual membership/donation letter was mailed this month. Membership dues of $20 are currently due and we appreciate any donations to Arts Council.
Olde Towne Hall Theatre – During the period of October 12 through October 27, the Olde Towne Hall Theatre will present “Little Shop of Horrors.” We, as a group, would like to go support them and see another one of their excellent performances. Let’s plan on Friday, October 12 at 7:30 p.m. Call Nancy Gavin at 440-353-9395 to make reservations. If you cannot come then, plan to go another day.
Program – Our program involved a trip to At Home store in Avon to plan decorating our homes. Instead of refreshments after our meeting, we stopped at Steak N Shake nearby to enjoy an ice cream sundae or milk shake. All of us enjoyed the ice cream and sharing in conversation.
October and November Meetings – At our October meeting Phyllis Levine, author of the Matilda book series, will give her observations on her written journey to being published. She will speak at 7:00 p.m. In November bring a small pumpkin with about 15 real leaves so we can make a Holiday center piece.
