MAY/JUNE 2015 NEWSLETTER
FROM THE PRESIDENT
Happy Spring!
What can I say about Paint-In 2015? As impossible as it seems,
Paint-In just continues to get better with each year that passes. I
want to especially thank all of you who were involved in making it
the success that it was. Such an event doesn't happen without a lot
of hard work from those of you who planned the event, organized
the classes, handled the Registration, painted the name tags and
table decorations, organized the Brown Bag Raffle, taught the
classes, etc. And a big “Thank You" also goes out to our Members
who participated, donated to the Raffle, and supported this event in
a myriad of ways. It was a great weekend of laughing and painting
with one another. I hope that you already have your 2016 calendar
marked for this not-to-be missed event.
I know our May Meeting can sometimes be a challenge to make,
but definitely try to attend. We will have info about our upcoming
Seminars, and decisions to make about next year's events. And the
highlight of every Meeting is the After Meeting Project. And this
one is not to be missed. We will paint a lovely little dogwood
taught by Joyce Yarbrough.
Look forward to seeing you there!
Happy Painting!

2015 FUNDRAISER
Thank you to all the people who have signed up to paint for this year's Fundraiser:
"Seasonal Potpourri." We already have such a variety of surfaces and subjects; it's going to
be hard to choose which Raffle tickets to buy! Remember that painted items are due at the
July Meeting (now is not too late to start painting, ladies). Raffle tickets will be distributed
at the September Meeting, and the Raffle will take place at the November Meeting. Half
the proceeds go to our Chapter and the other half to a charity - still TBD.

“Member of the Month”
MEMORY BOX PROGRAM
The Dogwood Chapter, as a part of the
Memory Box Program, paints paper
mache boxes for the Infant Bereavement
Program at Northside Hospital. These
boxes are given to the parents of a child
who dies in childbirth or shortly thereafter.
It contains a birth certificate, lock of hair,
foot print and a cap or blanket provided by
the Hospital Auxiliary and any other
mementos of a life that was too short.
Northside maternity is a very busy place
handling thousands of births a month.
Their need at this point is for in excess of
40 boxes a month and they are
appreciated by the staff and parents more
than anyone realizes. You can pick up
boxes at any Meeting, take them home,
paint them and return them at the next
Meeting. Please be sure to sign them as
this personalizes them for the parents who
receive them. Please consider giving just
a few hours to paint a couple of boxes for
this program.
If you have any questions,
or need boxes, please contact:
Sandy Carroll at (770) 630-4559 or email
her at [email protected]
