Previous Events

The Harvest Festival was a beautiful day.  Sales were good.  Hope to have more of you join us next year!
DAG's Annual Meeting was held on October 2nd at the Shire Pub in Delhi.  If you are new to the club and would like to volunteer, we sure could use the help.  Call Susan Priest at 607-746-3220.  Do you have any ideas or suggestions on how we could increase our membership?  Do you have leadership qualities and think you'd enjoy running an art club?  Our President, Susan Priest, would welcome a break.
Chicken BBQ Fundraiser was held on October 15th in Delhi.  Despite nasty weather, it went well.  Only three of our members volunteered to sell the chicken, so next year, we hope more of you will volunteer an hour of your time.
The Collage Workshop was well attended...what a great time!  Kay Parisi-Hampel was a great workshop leader.  The children's class was held during the same time, and the children got to do collage as well.  Sharing the experience with the adults was great for everyone.
