A Note from the Guild President:

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

A special thank you goes out to you the members of the Lawrence Art Guild.  It has been a very full year and November and December were the icing on the year.  The Guild was given the opportunity to participate in the Lawrence Annual Festival of Trees to benefit the Children’s Shelter.  Our donation of a tree, “Birds of a Feather” was a remarkable group project and big THANK YOU to members who created the tree ornaments, who spent a Sunday afternoon decorating and wiring in all the wonderful ornaments, and, on December 1,  helping to deliver a fully assembled 6-7 foot tree from the Guild Office on 9th Street to Liberty Hall (an interesting journey for sure).  The winning auction bid earned $500 for the Children’s Shelter. Congratulations Members!

A big thank you goes out to the members who participated in the Annual Holiday Art Fair at the Lawrence Art Center on December 7.  A thank you also goes out to those of you who visited and shopped at our annual event.  Again, our generous artists donated 10% of the sales to the Guild Gifting Program.  Thank you all.

Our annual Holiday Luncheon and Cookie Exchange was a wonderful event on December 16 at Maceli’s.  Again, another opportunity to be with members, meet many new members to the Guild, and share in what makes holidays special.  And a thank you for such a tremendous variety of Holiday cookies.

Now, we head into a NEW YEAR and a NEW DECADE and the opportunity to make it our best ever. Dennis, Linda, Janet Lynn and myself extend our wishes to you for a happy holiday and a year full of joy, love, and laughter.  Merry Christmas!  Happy Holidays!
