The January Meeting of the SFBAPG was held on Jan. 29th at Christ Presbyterian Church in Terra Linda, CA.
Meeting called to order by Conrad at 6:35 PM
Regarding Scholarships from P of A for the upcoming National Festival: Applications are available online.
Guild Web site: If members offer services or have a performance that they wish to publicize on the web site – let Conrad know so you can be added to our list of referrals. This is a good way to get the word out about your services.
There is an upcoming performance in San Francisco in February by Kevin Augustine. Conrad has had the opportunity of working with him and he is very unusual and delightful.
Guild Member Lex Rudd, of Primal Visions, has now become a designer with Folkmanis Puppets, and 4 of her designs are now being manufactured. She had 3 of these at the meeting on display.
Membership: Michael – Membership renewals or applications are being accepted tonight.
Membership Roster: It has been suggested that the roster be emailed to members and those who wish to print it, can, and those who don’t use it, don’t have to. This method of distribution would save us a lot of money in duplication and postage. Motion: by Jesse that roster be available in PDF format to members via email but also available in hard copy at meetings for those members without computer resources or who want a printed resource. 2nd. by Greg. Motion passed.
Newsletter: Michael – Request for any stories for the newsletter. If you have pictures, reviews or announcements that you would like to get in the newsletter (for this month) get them to Michael by tomorrow. Or after that for the March Newsletter.
50th Anniversary Party – Michael – chair of committee. Party right now is being planned for Sept. or October. Looking for people to help with the party. Please volunteerr. We want this to be a wonderful party.
Library: Our Librarian Lee has brought part of the library with her. Books and videos are available to be checked out by people who have been members at least 6 months. Check them out at one meeting and return at the next. Lee announced the donation of 3 books by Donna and Dennis Marvin to the library.
Meeting adjourned at 6:55. Followed by a wonderful performance of “Water Works” by Images in Motion.
