Just a few items sitting in the inbox this morning.
The next planned announcement is on or about September 17.
If you have something to share with the membership send your plain text note to this address firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com> . Target its arrival for the day before the planned announcement. Make sure it’s ready to send and read by the members so all I have to do is cut and paste.

>>>> Anyone have extra display panels? Give Jim Glover a shout.
This is a followup to a tentative yes I think I heard earlier in our correspondence. Christian Community Church at 5586 Olentangy River Road is putting on a 2-week indoor art show called “Drawn By the Light”. I am looking to borrow or rent display panels for our show. I’ve asked the Dublin Area Art League, but it unfortunately coincides with an event that DAAL has going on. II heard on the WAAL meeting for August that you’ll need at least some of yours for the Worthington Library at about the same time. Our event runs from September 17 to October 2. Will you be using all your display racks, or will there be some left over? If not, do you have any other sources/suggestions/ideas for me ? Thanks very much!!
