Greetings to CCAL Members:
There are a couple of deadlines approaching that of which you need to be aware.
Your vote can be cast for either or both of these by clicking on the links above.
Our May 17 meeting will be the Annual Member Contest, “South Carolina Feathered Friends and
Wildlife.” This in-person meeting will be held in the large room to the left of the lobby where we
would normally have the Juried Show Reception. If you are participating, you are reminded that
you need to let Kay Fox know. Please bring your own easel (floor or table top).
Please join me in welcoming the following new members who joined since my last President’s
Letter – Skip Willits and Carmen Willm.
Our final workshop for this League year will be Collage Landscapes presented by Julie Larkin and
will be in-person on May 14-15. Registration is still open online or by contacting Carol Blackwood.

We still need members to fill the positions of Refreshments Coordinator and Publicity
Coordinator. If you are willing to serve or would like more information, please contact me at

inviting us; and thank you to the members who attended.
We are coming to the end of our League year, and I want to thank everyone for their support and
participation in League activities. Even though the past nine months were less than “normal,” we
did have a successful year thanks to the Executive Board, the Committee Coordinators, and
especially our members.

5 workshops – 3 on Zoom and 2 in-person
11 Zoom Board meetings
2 successful juried exhibits
16 new members since September 2020

Thank you again for allowing me to serve as your President this year, and I hope to see you at the
May 17 in-person meeting. Continue to stay safe and continue to create.
Sandra Oliver, President
