Alameda County Fair Message from Jean Runge, Co-co-ordinator, Alameda County Fair Fine Arts Department 2020.
“Just to let you know that the 2020 Guide for the Fine Arts Department at the Fair should be up and running by the first of February. Deadline for entries will be April 22, 2020. Cathy O’Connell and myself have revised the guide to hopefully make it a bit better. I appreciate any input or questions you may have concerning the guide and directions for uploading images. My email address is email@example.com. Please put Alameda County Fair in the subject line since I may not recognize your name. If you haven’t entered the fair in the past, I encourage you to do so.”

DO NOT FORWARD YOUR CONSTANT CONTACT MESSAGES! If you did forward something to a friend, you may be reading this now at a friend’s house or the Gallery, or some other public place, but not in your InBox. Constant Contact is a service set up for members only. PAL & LAA submit email addresses of their members to Constant Contact & that’s how our electronic version of the Portfolio is sent out, as well as reminders of meetings & shows & special bulletins. If you suspect that you have forwarded one of these messages, you have been unsubscribed! You will need to follow the rather complicated procedure to reapply! It is much easier to just not forward any of the information that comes to you from Constant Contact. If you need or want to forward a message, please contact Norma Webb or Gene Gracey to obtain the original copy.
