Last year we had a H.O.T. sale at Tioga, we did this for recognition in the community and opportunity of experience.
Vote to repeat this sale.
Charlie C. motions that we have our spring sale at Tioga in February.
Lauren F. Seconds the motion.
Discussion regarding changing the location of the spring sale. Reasons that we have our spring sale in February rather than later. Tioga is a three day sale. Selling on campus creates no competition whereas selling at the fair there would be competition. Last year the Gainesville fine arts association donated a tent that we would use and waived the fees. The deadline would be in September.
Camile D. Would agree to do the Tioga sale if allowed to make a friendly amendment that we do the tioga sale and if bad weather we still have a sale at the rights union.
Charlie C. amends the motion
The amendment passes.
We will be having a make-a-thon for the H.O.T. clay sales on Oct 23 and 24 and all members should attend.

Drew’s Benefit & volunteer opportunities
Due to Drew losing his foot last December we will be having a benefit for him in order to raise money for his medical costs. Charlie C. and Linda A. have collaborated to have an online auction. Over 150 artists have donated work in Drew’s honor. There have been many volunteers to help unpacking and taking images of the works. After the auction Charlie C. will need help to pack and ship the purchased work. Charlie would like to give a workshop on how to pack ceramics pieces of art. Charlie assumes all responsibility after showing students how to pack. This will be a great opportunity to learn to pack.
Fri Sept. 10th at 9am there will be a preview of the works at Charlie Cummings
studio. A permission slip will need to be signed in order to go on the trip.
