IN “HONOR” OF OUR FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES
Last October PWS lost a true friend, a wonderful artist, and loyal member of the PWS Board, Ron Schloyer. Ron was our Workshop Coordinator for many year. To honor Ron’s legacy, we will be presenting a Juried Show award in his memory at this year's exhibition.
As I was thinking about this, I was reminded of an excellent idea that was presented to the Board by our 2VP, Karen Frattalli, who works tirelessly all year coming up with awards for the Juried Show. Karen’s idea was to present this same opportunity of an Honorary or Memorial Award to the entire PWS membership. So, if any PWS member or family or group of members knew of someone who deserved such an honor, they could establish an award in his/her honor. The award could be anywhere from $25 on up to whatever amount desired. The PWS Board also agreed to match any amount up $100, so if your award was for $100, with PWS’s match, it actually would be a $200 award! Of course, the donor gets to name the award (perhaps something like “The John Doe Outstanding Watercolor Award”). If you would like to discuss this idea further, you may contact John W. Walker (717-235-5310) or Karen Fratalli (610-347-0192). We have set up a form on the website to create this award CLICK HERE, or you can simply send a check to me at 4077 Bowser Road, New Freedom, PA 17349.
