  Greetings From Our Regional Director
                               Baseball, cook outs, lilacs, lightening bugs, popsicles; spring is here and summer is so
                      close we can almost touch it. Wrap up this year and begin to think about the next. I hope you had a
                      good year. It is amazing how fast time flies. Please keep checking your e-mail over the summer.
                      This will be our way to keep you up to date on activities.
                               We had a terrific time at the Boonshoft Museum in February. Seventeen members
                      explored the world of Nano-technology. Go to our Blog to see pictures from the workshop. If there
                      is a workshop you would like to see, please let us know.
                               Lindsay Gustafson has been working hard to set up our summer Regional show. We are at
                      ArtStreet on the University of Dayton campus again. It is a terrific facility and our students’ work
                      shines. I hope to see you at one of the three receptions. You will be receiving letters soon.
    Cathy Sweny   June 30th is our Annual Summer Awards Luncheon. Please join us at the Dayton Art Institute to
honor our regional award winners. We will have a terrific free buffet lunch and the opportunity to participate in a needle
felting workshop immediately after. Again watch your e-mail for specific times and costs for the workshop.
                  As you clean up your classroom for the summer break, look for items you don’t really need but hate to
throw away. We are planning a Pop-the Trunk Swap for this summer. We will meet at a park, pop our trunks and
swap materials. We will plan on bringing lunch so we can relax and talk. Again, watch you e-mail for further
                  Would you be interested in a short road trip? We would like to organize a local museum trip. We
could meet, car pool and explore. Cincinnati, Indianapolis, and Columbus would all be worth while. If you are interested
please e-mail me, Cathy Sweny at Have a great summer and read your e-mails.
