Annual Membership Meeting and Picnic
Sunday, August 26, 2018
Joni’s Beach @ 4:00
Please join the LPC Board for our Annual Membership Meeting and Picnic at the beach. Chris Brown, our picnic chef, will be serving grilled brats, potato salad, and beverages.
Thank you for your 2018 membership support of La Pointe Center (LPC) for the Arts. We are hoping you will choose to become a member of our organization in 2018 and attend our membership meeting. Our by-laws state that every year we must have a membership meeting to inform our members of our finances and other business plans. We also need you as members to vote on the new Board Directors that have been selected. We need a quorum of 15 members. It has been challenging some years to get 15 folks together some Sundays afternoons. We are hoping that this special invitation and meeting notice rallies the crew! Your meeting participation is much needed and greatly appreciated.
Artfully yours, The LPC Board of Directors:
Peg Bertel (chair), Susan Sabre (treasurer), Michele Auger, Chris Brown, Sally Brown, Leslie Mack, Micaela Montagne, and Carol Sowl.
We will have a short business meeting followed by presentations from our affiliate organizations and the winners of our 2017/18 grant awards.
