On Tuesday October 6th 2015 WASM had our annual Meet and Greet & Art Exhibit at 2700 Rufus Rockhead right beside the Atwater market which was a great success. Dozens of new and returning members attended, bringing their art for sale and getting to know each other. Additionally, decorations from last year’s tree ornament activity (which we will be doing again this year with the Museum of Fine Arts) were available for members to take home with them.
Members and prospective members mingled, enjoying tea/coffee and chips and dip.
A delicious lunch was prepared by Board member Bonnie Hill, including but not limited to: chicken satay skewers; egg and tuna salad sandwiches; cheese and crackers; and spring rolls.
Following lunch, every member briefly introduced themselves and mentioned what their passion was. This allowed WASM members to become better acquainted with each other, creating a closeness that other events are not always able to. In response to the event, many members contacted WASM to mention how much they appreciated this aspect of the Meet and Greet.
All in all, the day was a great success and we’re already looking forward to next year’s. Visit our Facebook page to see the rest of the pictures from the event and for reminders/follow ups of future events. If you weren’t able to make it to this event, we hope you can make the next one!
Thank-you for your gracious welcome! I thoroughly enjoyed myself at the Meet and Greet. So many lovely interesting women who all have a special talent and a story to tell. I look forward to participating in the group’s events.
