January Social 2012

Our Annual January Social was held January 26th from 7 to 9pm at Smitty’s Restaurant Banquet room. Members met for a fun evening of visiting and snacks. We are so grateful to David (Michele Brewster’s brother-in-law) from DST Consulting for hosting this special night. As members enjoyed each others’ company, sharing our Artists activities over this past year and hopes for the coming year, this surely was a fun time.

Byron Nilsson gave us a talk and demonstration regarding the Website and showed us around the site and explained what we have available to us through our Website, Facebook, Twitter and Google plus. We also now have a secure member’s only feature. Thanks Byron, that was a great help.
Greg McMartin brought one of his Ice Sculptures for us to enjoy; it was great… Thanks Greg!

If you missed this social plan to come next year as it is a really fun evening.
