I just want to take a minute to thank you ALL for making our May Member Meeting a HUGE success. I especially want to thank all the folks that help "toast" Roger Yost at last night event. Rebecca Maitland for getting Roger to our meeting, Nancy Gorrell for the outstanding lettering on the very large champagne glass we presented Roger, Diane Forsberg for risking her life opening the many champagne bottles, Joel Zak for his talents in photographing this event, Lorraine Dye and Brigitte Cobb for all their help and to Marilyn Krug for doing a wonderful job introducing Roger and sharing all the background information about Roger and all the wonderful things he does for the arts in Salem.
You can see Joel's photos on the AiA flickr site HERE.
I also want to acknowledge and thank our speakers at last night's meeting.
Dan Zeitman from the Oregon Peace Works and his presentation about the MyPeace Project.
April Waters for her outstanding presentation about her "Contemporary Women Leaders for Peace and the Environment" project. It was wonderful to hear what went into this project and what inspired her to create this beautiful and meaningful body of work.
Thanks again for a great Member Meeting,
2010 AiA President
