The Livermore Art Association & Pleasanton Art League General Meeting
will be the Annual Potluck & Social held on Monday, September 12. Dick and Bonnie Bartlett were again gracious to host this event at their Charles R Winery Tasting Room in the South Livermore Hills. Dinner will be on the patio. Enjoy the summer evening with your new and old friends, members of LAA and PAL and their guests. Everyone is welcome to this yearly event. Bring your favorite dish (appetizers, salad, main dish or dessert). LAA will supply paper and plastic utensils, wine and water. It is suggested that you bring your food dish between 5:30 and 6:00 pm when the party will start in earnest.
Please RSVP to Caryne Mount, 650 430-2311 or firstname.lastname@example.org (email is preferred!) She would like to know what you plan to bring so that she can coordinate.
Caryne would also like volunteers to help set up and clean up. It would be helpful if everyone was responsible for leftover food that they brought, since there is no place to store serving dishes, or food; please take it home at the end of the party.
There will be a short business meeting and election of LAA Officers for next year’s Board

Message from the PAL President
You’ve Got to Bumble Forward into the Unknown
–Frank Gehry, Architect
First of all, I want to thank George Garbarino who has stepped in as acting VP for PAL for the remainder of the year. John West has moved to Austin, Texas. We will miss John’s insightful input over the past two years, and wish him many rewards in his new life.
Through thanking others, you’ll learn what’s been happening this summer: Linda Garbarino, Pat Smith and Ritu Ahluwalia continue to work on the plans for our October Chamber of Commerce Mixer; Pat Smith continues to work on our Firehouse Member’s Show and Reception for our artists; John Trimingham is working with Stanford Medical Center in what could be the expansion of our Circuit; Linda & George Garbarino are working on our September workshop; Judy Rice has been working on the Robert Livermore Community Center shows; and Beth Okurowski & Rekha Joshi have worked with Dave Wright of PCAC in setting up the YMCA summer art program in Pleasanton schools, and many of our artists who have volunteered in the classroom.
We have the behind the scenes workers as well: Norma Webb, Diane and Stephen Rodriguez, Rahul Prasad, Nancy Meyer, Lynda Briggs, Diana Hostetter, Melinda Lentz, Gene Gracey, and Alka Vaidya.
If you’d like to join the PAL team next year, we have three openings at this time: First, the General Meeting Chair. This person finds an artist for our bi-monthly Monday evening demonstrations and makes arrangements with them. Secondly, we need a chair for our Artist Flea Market in April. This person contacts the City of Pleasanton to arrange the date, contacts artists who wish to participate, and oversees the activities of the day. Thirdly, we have the Hospitality Chair open, and the main responsibility is overseeing refreshments for our two annual art shows.
So, come bumble with me into the unknown and help keep PAL the great organization that it is!
