SPRING 2015

Spring President Report………from Ellie Dahlstrom

CONGRATULATIONS to Nancy McCabe who celebrated her 90th Birthday on April 11, 2015 with a birthday bash at the Irish Times. There were quite a few members there and all of her children and granddaughter. Nancy was one of CCAA’s founder in the 1960. She brings joy to all she meets. We are so privileged to have her friendship for these many years. She is much loved.

Report on the President.

I have enjoyed a good winter with my usual volunteer activities, luncheons and theater events. I walked outside most days and was bundled up pretty well. We did not get much snow but did have many days below zero. The grass is now green, the ducks are here and the squirrels are busy. I expect the deer as soon as my hosta are a bit taller.

With the earlier rising of the sun my body clock is waking me earlier. I am getting into the summer mode. I wonder if this is how a bear feels coming out of hibernation?

Coming in the Summer:

June 18th is a day for CCAA members to mark on your calendars. Dolly Luoma has graciously invited us to the Luoma Estate at Sedar Bay. We will have a tour, a potluck luncheon and our monthly meeting. Watch for sign up information at the Gallery.

Our talented gallery people, Ginny Douglas and Freddi Taddiuci are requesting new work for the gallery. This is a good chance to freshen the look of your work in the Gallery. Any member can display. Title, media and price are necessary.

New to the Gallery are wonderful cloth totes (donated by Dolly) creatively painted by our artists. These totes are for sale as a fund raiser for the CCAA. Price is $10.00

Clyde Mikkola will have a show at the Gallery Boehm in June. A reception will be held on Friday, June 5th.

Bob Dawson will show at the Kerredge Gallery in the CCAAA in Hancock during the month of June. There will be a reception on June 12th, 6-8PM. Both receptions will be attended by your President.

Pam Hecht will present a jewelry class May 2nd. “The Art of Wire Jewelry”. Sign up in the Gallery.

Now, looking forward to summer, check your recipes for the upcoming pot luck. Sign up in the Gallery for some selling time and begin to prepare for the Eagle Harbor Art Fair. The Best Art Fair in the UP!!
