December 2019 President’s Message

As I look back over the past year, I realize that BWS has accomplished several meaningful projects. Here are some examples of our accomplishments in 2019. Our website has been re-designed and up-dated to better serve our members and our community at large. We have also provided a recycle table at each BWS general meeting for the sharing of art supplies with the BWS members and to help our organization raise money to support art education in Brevard County. Presently, we are working hard on the restructure of the educational part of our organization, in hopes of providing a more effective way to distribute art supplies and funds to the teachers and students involved in the art programs of Brevard County.

For the immediate future, we are gearing up for the 25th Anniversary of Splash coming in February 2020. For a successful art show, we will need 100% participation from our BWS membership. Much work needs to be done, and many hands will make the work light. Also, for the coming year, we will be reviewing our bylaws and up-dating where needed. As our organization grows, we need to make sure our bylaws allow us to make the changes that meet the needs of our membership, and our art community.

As Thanksgiving approaches, we must remember to says thanks to those who have made our lives easier. So, I say thanks to all of you for your hard work and support. I am thankful for the members of the BWS board. You are a delight to work with. Your dedication and talents are noticed by all, and are greatly appreciated. To all the members of BWS, I hope you have a great Thanksgivings Holiday, and a Merry Christmas.
