Muleshoe Art Association enjoys Christmas party

The Muleshoe Art Association met on Wednesday, December 6th, in the home of Sandi Chitwood for their December meeting and annual Christmas luncheon and gift exchange.
President Martha Hunnicutt held a brief business meeting that included roll call, the reading of the minutes from last month’s meeting, and an abbreviated treasurer’s report. Martha reported she would be meeting with the Muleshoe Area Medical Center concerning updates on the art displayed there.
Vice-president Kay Hohes reminded members of the January 2nd meeting which will be a road trip to Lubbock to have lunch and visit the studio of former association member Jan Lloyd. Members were reminded to meet at the Aim Bank parking lot at 10 a.m. to leave as a group.

Hunnicutt informed members of the possibility of an upcoming photography workshop with Wes Underwood which would be open to members as well as anyone interested in learning more about photography. Contact Martha Hunnicutt for more information.
The need for a first aid kit was discussed at the last meeting, and it turns out that Excel Energy and the Tolk Station heard of the concern and donated a first aid kit for our convenience and use, which we very much appreciate.
Melba Bratcher reminded members of the ongoing art display by members at the Muleshoe Public Library. Ann Johnson’s work will be on display until the end of December and will be replaced for the months of January and February with the work of Martha Hunnicutt.
Jon Birdsong invited members to meetings of the Pintores Art League which are held on the first Thursday of the month at Clovis Community College. The January program will be given by a photographer from Las Vegas, New Mexico.
After the meeting was adjourned, members enjoyed a pot luck meal of the dishes they had all prepared and brought to the event.
The members then shared the Christmas gifts they had brought by playing Chinese Christmas, which involves drawing numbers and going in order to pick a gift from under the tree or by taking a gift that has already been opened by someone before them. Everyone eventually winds up with a gift, but not before some lighthearted exchanging of gifts occurs.

Other members present for the party included, standing left to right: Martha Hunnicutt, Jackie Hinterliter, Dianne Brown, Melba Bratcher, Pauline Clark; seated: Kay Hohes, Shirley White, Sandi Chitwood, Sandra Chancey. Not pictured: Alice Liles.
