Members' Day: Luncheon and talk by Sandy Baylin

Members' Day (Tuesday, October 26th) began with a luncheon for the new members at the Delta Hotel's Aroma Room downtown. Each member introduced herself and as always, I was amazed at how various and interesting the different backgrounds of our members are. The food was terrific and the buffet provided a pleasant and relaxed backdrop for the get-together. A big thank you to Hospitality Chair Shirley Cohen for making it all happen.
After lunch, we moved over to the McCord for the Members' Day lecture, delivered this year by painter Sandy Baylin. She spoke about her artistic path, the experiences from her growing up and the people and places that have influenced her. Her talk was generously illustrated with slides of her paintings of the Laurentian landscape.
