The Ceramic Club General Meeting held on July 13 featured CAC member Shoshana Kobrin’s very interesting & inspiring powerpoint presentation describing her journey as a sculptor of the human figure. A video recording is available for our members to view on YouTube. (Note: it runs about 29 minutes.)
We had a wonderful Patio Party with a Hawaiian theme, organized by Linda Mariano and Mary Ann Stanley with the help of numerous other hard-working and enthusiastic volunteers. Kathy Jepson did a great job with the refreshments - lots of appetizers, finger-food, and desserts, plus wine, lemonade and sparkling water. Judy Russell was in charge of entertainment, including a Hawaiian themed Jeopardy game as well as music and dance courtesy of Rossmoor's Hawaii Club and the Ukulele Club. Quite a lot of our members even got up to learn a couple of hula dances, which was a lot of fun!
It was marvelous to celebrate with our members and their guests, after such a difficult time with the pandemic shut-down. Especially as we were about to have the studio shut down again to be remodeled. As you can see, everyone really enjoyed being together in person at last!
Below are some photos of the festive event taken by various CAC folks who were there. You can also see a slideshow on YouTube that includes several video clips from the party.
