Hello again. Hope you have plans to enjoy this very fine Saturday!
It’s time for the promised announcements.
Over the next couple of weeks you will notice a changed in the face behind this email address. Ruth Ann Mitchell will now be the keeper of this address. I am excited to be stepping out of the role of membership chair having done that since the 2006-7 membership year when I inherited it from Janet Waggoner. I am pleased that Ruth Ann will be stepping into it. The email address will not change (membership@worthingtonareaartleague.com <mailto:membership@worthingtonareaartleague.com>) only the person behind it will. Please use this email to communicate with WAAL about your membership, questions you might have, or things you want to share with fellow members in these announcements . If stuff does show up at my house or in my personal email I will forward them to Ruth Ann so nothing gets lost. Well, at least that’s the goal.
The plan is for this announcement to be my last one. The next planned one will be on or about July 8.
It’s been fun! Thanks for all your help over the past 16 years. Chuck Zelms
Now on to the news!

We got our first quarterly check but it was only $3.83 and only ONE HOUSEHOLD signed up – and that’s ME! We can do better. It would be nice to fund some of our scholarships with these funds. I am attaching the instructions for signing up.
