Member Potluck Dinner
The Marlborough Arts Center's Annual June Pot Luck Supper and Meeting which is open to all members will be held on Monday, June 17, 2013 from 6-8 p.m. at the Blish Park Pavilion. This is a "Come One; Come All' evening for the membership, and a great opportunity to mingle with fellow members while enjoying the always delicious home-made foods everyone brings. Out-going President Fran Terase will introduce the new candidates for Officers to be elected. The entire Board of Directors will be present to thank the many volunteers and members who have given freely of their time and talents throughout the year, as well as the many members who quietly support the Organization with their dues and gifts. Without this loyal membership, all the varied activities of the Organization would not be possible. So bring a favorite dish of yours and prepare to have a good time. Even if it rains, it will be comfortable under the Pavilion and there is ample parking available.
