Rejeanne Sardo, a WAAH Past President
MAY 20, 2018 — This year our President's Tea coincided with Signs of Life. Held at the Art Gallery of Hamilton, it was also the Opening of our 122nd Annual Juried Exhibition Opening. It was held in the upper and lower level Fischer Gallery. This setup provided an opportunity for members to sit and socialize; laugh and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee with a variety of cheeses, crackers, and other light refreshments. Thanks to all who contributed in manner of items and time.
Draw tickets, anyone?
