HOW OUR 2022-23 YEAR IS SHAPING UP

 

ELEGANT EARTH ENVELOPE CONTEST

“I want to give a personal example of how your guild touched people everywhere……even as far as Texas. Forty-two years ago, I went to a calligraphy conference at Ghost Ranch, NM. I didn’t know any of the other participants, so I was assigned a roommate from Midland, Texas. And through those years we kept in touch but seeing each other only occasionally. She was a much more active calligrapher than I am. When ECS began their zoom meetings, I talked her into joining, and we would email each other with comments about the meetings. Unfortunately, last year she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and passed away just before Thanksgiving. ECS made such an impact on her that her daughters mentioned it in her obituary. That is just one example of the outreach, instruction, and comfort that your zoom meetings provide. THANK YOU.

I am amazed at all the active members you have and everyone’s willingness to help the guild and others. A true calligraphic sharing example!”
