The Art Mart is an annual event that was begun 10 years ago for the purpose of helping fund the Mitzi Hunter Art Scholarship program for an outstanding senior art student at Tarpon Springs High School. Club members bring their arts, photos and crafts and tables are set up, ready for sales. This is in time for Holiday giving (and for ourselves as well)… included are works of art, jewelry, holiday cards, needle work, decorated dish towels, etc. These are all high quality items, so you can’t go wrong with any purchase.
Donations Requested: Monetary donations to the Mitzi Hunter Art Scholarship Program.
MaryAnn Cozzens, our Conservation chair, will have bins for recycling bras, cell phones, eyeglasses. If you have any of these unused items lying around your house, pleases bring them in for recycling.
The Program for the meeting will be a talk by Sara Liami from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. This should be very interesting and informative.
