Dear Etude Club members and friends,

Thanks to all who helped make our October meeting a success: performers who presented a varied and enjoyable program, Deborah Long for arranging it, hospitality chair Joan Garvin and her assistants, and our audience. Afterwards, we had tea and refreshments and socialized.

Our next meeting will be November 27th, the Monday after Thanksgiving. We will be treated to bass viola da gamba duets, and a Martinu trio for flute, cello and piano. This holiday affords us a special opportunity to appreciate the Etude Club for the wonderful musical performances and the friendships that are so vital.

Thank you to Pat Atwood, Julia Wenk and Hildred Yost for your generous donations to the General Fund and in the memory of June Browne. We gratefully welcome donations, which are tax deductible, from members and the community, which may be sent to our treasurer, Sandy Watkins, or online at etudeclub.org.

If you are an Etude Club member and have not yet paid your dues, please send a check to our treasurer, Sandy Watkins, or pay online with paypal on this website.

Have a healthy and happy Thanksgiving,
Janet Weinstein
