Our December potluck is fast approaching! We will meet on Sunday, December 1, from 12:30-3:00 pm at the Darien Municipal Center to share our traditional holiday meal and enjoy lots of time to chat with fellow artists. In order to help our Hospitality Coordinator Barb Arntzen plan, please RSVP to her at firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know what dish you will bring for the potluck. We will also have a gift swap, so bring a small, wrapped handmade gift or art item if you'd like to participate in the exchange. We also need several people to help set up the tables and chairs and to return the room to normal at the end of the meeting. Please let Barb know if you can help.

5. HELP NEEDED!
We need several members to serve on the nominating committee again this year. Our elections will be coming up in the spring, and we need to identify candidates and determine the slate. We've found that 3 people is ideal for this committee, so if you are willing to serve, please contact me. This committee works entirely by phone or email, so no traveling is needed.
