A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT


A Message From Bronwen Fullington, President of CVA:

Greetings from the heart and heat of August! Hope you are all staying cool and creative. CVA is continuing to provide opportunities to view and participate in art and craft – we had a presence at Last Friday in Clayton on July 26, and at the Clayton Farm Market on the 27, and plan to do the same this month on August 30 and 31.

Our new board and officers are working hard to continue the activities and services that CVA has long provided, and to develop some new programs.

I want to thank Jeanne George, VP and the rest of the board who will be covering for me for the month of September, while I will be on a long anticipated trip to Italy.

Sincerely,

Bronwen
