    Cogitations from the Chair

       The Forgotten Coast Festival of Trees was a "Tree-mendous" success.

    (Pardon the pun.) Over a thousand people attended the 12 day event. Everyone who created a tree or holiday display showed so much creativity and enthusiasm. Our thanks to everyone who sponsored the event, participated in the creation of a display, donated to the silent auction, provided musical entertainment and volunteered their time and efforts to making this a wonderful event for the community to enjoy. The People's Choice award went to Windolf Construction for their tree made out of 2x4's, construction materials and antique tools.This was one that the guys really seemed to enjoy. We are looking forward to an even more exciting event next year. If you want to see pictures of all the events, check out the web page. We are still uploading great pictures.

    We have an exciting line-up of shows and exhibits coming up in 2020. Be sure to check it out further on in this newsletter. On behalf of the board, I want to extend the warmest Holiday Greetings and our best wishes for a new year full of exciting art adventures.
