August  2020   Speaker Laura Smith will present her Power Point presentation The Seven Ways of Color Contrast teaches about the most important aspects of color. This is a basic to intermediate lecture, but those who are advanced in their use of color often find that it clarifies concepts of fills “holes” in their knowledge.

September 2020   No formal program.

October 2020   Our own Jeannette Tombaugh will share her program on a very unique set of samplers and their history. “ The Lost Samplers,” is a historical/genealogy lecture examining samplers from the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. The lecture takes Jeanette & her husband to a small town in western Pennsylvania to trace their family roots. They visit one of the oldest B&B in the country that was once owned by their ancestors. Jeanette came upon several original samplers that were displayed in the Inn. Two month’s later the Inn was destroyed and all the samplers were gone. Jeanette has done some genealogy tracing on the the samplers and is working to restore the samplers with help from various chapters to give back to the Inn. The Inn was rebuilt and opened in 2018. They are still open through these trying times as well.
