With the Holiday season almost behind us it is a time to look back on the past year of 2012 and forward to the New Year of 2013. February of 2012 was our Guild’s fifth anniversary and a very active five years it has been with two very successful Horizon Retreats, and plans underway for our third retreat in February 2013 as well as a juried polymer clay exhibit.
Although the trial blog was done in June 2011in March our Blog was officially operational thanks to Sue Bentley for setting it up and Joan Tayler for doing the blogging.
In April the Guild was shocked and saddened by the untimely death of one of our youngest and most active members, Caitlin Mancer.
Many thanks to the executive for planning the meetings and demos and posting that information on our Yahoo site. A special thanks to Nancy and April for arranging for the clubhouse for our meetings and always having fresh tea, coffee and snacks available..
We usually have polymer clay demos after the business meetings and Nancy, Ellen, Joan, Laurel, Jem, Lawrence and Nettonya all shared their techniques for these demos.

Yes it was a very active year but now we have to look forward to an even more active 2013. A Happy New Year to all of our executive, members, friends and supporters.
