Gail Christofferson described her exciting collaborative glass mosaic project
that will be a part of Art in the Park. Gail will be enlisting the aid of local
service groups (e.g. Zontas, Kiwanis, etc.) in promoting and participating
in this project. Gail has received $5000 in grant money and asks for assistance from BGAC in writing another grant with a March deadline. Jacqui has agreed to assist with this, using a template draft that Gail will write.
**The group decided that 4:30 – 7:30 would be ideal hours for the June 10th 2016 event.
50+ Shades of Grey – The group decided that three options for registration
be available: 1) persons can register on the Senior Center website and mail
a check to the BGAC post office box; 2) persons can fill out a registration form
and send it plus a check to the BGAC post office box; 3) persons can bring
a completed registration form and check to art intake. Jacqui has agreed
to revise the pdf to reflect these options and to forward the revised
pdf to Denise so that it can go on the Senior Center website and so that
printed copies can be available at the Center.
