Presidents Message

President’s Message for 2017
Happy New Year All!

2016 has been a very interesting year!  We are beginning our New Year with a new Board!
The Treasurer we welcomed to the board this year, Marilyn de Leo Pollock, did a wonderful job setting us up as a "non-profit" organization, all very above board with GRF.  Thank you, Marilyn!!

Marilyn will be passing the responsibility to Doris Kaseck who has a lifetime of experience in the field.

New people on the board are: First Vice President, Leslie Palm, Corresponding Secretary, Dorothy Kuhr, Assistant Treasurer, Janet Willson, and Joan Scully, one year Director and Publishing. Marilyn de Leo Pollock and Karen Jaker Napack will remain on the 2017 Board as well. Welcome to all!  We are short a Recording secretary as the person we elected decided not to serve. We will deal with this at the first board meeting in January.

Lynda Borges, President

Librarians Corner by Mary Doyle

New books added recently to our Library: "Simple Pottery" by Sara Pearch and Geraldine Christy and "New Ceramic Surface Design" by Molly Hatch. I have purchased it for our Club after reading good reviews and seeing the colorful layout with spiral binding.

Books may be borrowed by members for two weeks except for those labeled DNR which may be read in the studio only. Remember to ask a Supervisor to open the shelves for you. We also have new Ceramics Monthly, Pottery Making Illustrated, Clay Times, Sculpture, and Sculpture Review. They are filed newest on top in the fat binders. The library is a valuable resource for potters of all abilities.
