June 13 - June Meeting - Yard Sale and
We will meet at
4017 Meadow Brook
Road, from 1:30 to 4:30. June 13 is the second Sunday, our regular
meeting time. We still have some of Frank Letzler's art materials, and
anyone who has some surplus items is welcome to bring them to sell or
trade. Please price them with tape tags. 10% of all transactions should
be donated to the Letzler Fund, as well as all of the sales of his
things and anything else people may want to donate to the cause,
including a lot of art magazines and books.
Nancy will provide tea and sodas; others can bring
nibbles as they please. There will be no formal sign-up for providing
refreshments. Nancy will also provide some tables and chairs, but others
are encouraged to bring their own, especially if you have a lot to sell
We won't advertise to the general public, but if you know
interested people or organizations, please invite them to join us.
Depending upon the weather, we may be in the back, rather than under the
trees in front. Look for us.
We also want to elicit more Letzler Award entries from
the elementary schools than we had this year. We will take this
opportunity to brainstorm ideas to make it go over better. A couple
floated at the last meeting were to move to May, after the testing
frenzy is over, and to get the announcement out in August so that
teachers can include it in their yearly planning. Other possibilities
are limiting entries to a smaller area around Waco and making visits to
the schools and/or posters for them. We can consider these and other

We met on Nancy
Cagle's shady driveway, where Nancy had set up tables for items
to be bought or traded. The Letzler Scholarship Fund benefited from some
sales. After a while, President Charleen Isbell called the meeting to
order and welcomed Ingrid Erickson, one of our newest members. After the
usual reports and announcements, there was discussion of several future
possibilities, with the following outcomes:
1. Nancy Cagle will check with Waco Charter School about finishing our
mural, and holding meetings there.
2. Awarding ribbons for Show and Tell will resume.
3. The Art Guild will not meet in July or August. The
next general meeting will be on September 12, but the location is
4. Several venues for displaying and selling paintings
were suggested, without any consensus or commitment to explore them.
5. Myrl Luper offered to take members in her RV to an
RV park in Whitney where she has a membership.
6. The Letzler scholarship committee was encouraged to
meet soon to work out the details for next year's contest, so that
schools can be notified in August and get it on their calendars.
7. Bobbee Watts showed us her beautiful painting of
Then the meeting was adjourned, and Nancy and Charleen treated us to
cold drinks, crackers and cheese dip, which we enjoyed as we visited in
air-conditioned comfort inside.
