2022 Potluck Dinner at Pruyn House Barn
Huge thank you to all the volunteers that helped organize and decorate. It was wonderful to dine and fellowship together with longtime members and some new members. The dozens of different dishes and desserts were delicious. It was also nice to honor Barbara Via for her services and congratulate a few raffle winners. It was a great way to start the summer and see all the smiles.

"Art cultivates understanding,
promotes tolerance,
provides healing therapies,
reflects issues of the days
and certainly helps in
designing our possessions!"
