We have enjoyed the art work of Janice Smith on our first community artist bulletin cover for the first half of Pentecost. The second half of Pentecost until Advent will feature artist Annette Smith (who passed in 2007). Annette was well-known by our longer term members. She is remembered by many for her art, many examples of which hang in other members’ homes.
