CTSA Call to Paint Thursday, June 16, Mercy Center, Madison 9-12
We have permission to paint at Mercy Center in Madison this coming Thursday from 9 - 12. You can access the bathrooms via the front main entrance. Bring your lunch and enjoy the day overlooking Long Island Sound on these extraordinary grounds. We will meet at the gazebo area for lunch around noon.
This will be my last Thursday paint out as I am no longer able to paint on Thursdays. Therefore, Veronica Soell, one of the original founders of this group seven years ago, will be coordinating the Thursday paint outs and posting the summary of the day’s paint out on the blog with help from Patty McGuire, so please sign up for the email alerts on the blog or simply go to the blog for the schedule (CTSA-guilford.blogspot.com).
