Jackson County Arts met at 6:00 pm on Monday, November 8, 2010. In attendance were Katie Morris, Mary Schock, Marian Stevens, Suzette McCord-Rogers, Sandy Studebaker, David Schock, Fred Appelhanz, Linda Brownlow, Marty Mavrovich, Ginnie Schirmer and Sarah Devader. Sarah Devader hosted the meeting at Sarah’s Enchanted Cottage.
Mary Schock has started buying fabric to make tablecloths for when we host a show, she needs to buy a few more yards to make enough. Katie shared results from the survey on meeting night and week. So far Monday of the 3rd week is still the most popular choice. You can take the survey athttp://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WJWLCCT. We will decide at the December meeting, with input from the survey, which week to meet in January. At our January meeting, we will have a soup supper at our January meeting when we elect officers and plan the calendar for the year.
Sarah and Marty are painting shop windows around town for Holton Mainstreet and are looking for volunteers. The theme will be “The Night Before Christmas”. They will be painting Thursday, November 11 and on Sunday, November 14th. If you want to help, meet at Sarah’s Enchanted Cottage starting at 10:00 am. Our next meeting will be Monday, December 13th.
We had a balance of $273.78 at our last meeting. $9.00 in donations were collected and we earned $8.00 for our Jackson County fair booth ribbon. $29.32 was paid out for black felt to make tablecloths. Cash on hand at meeting time was $261.46.
