WASM remembers Annette Rudy

It is with great sadness that WASM learns of the passing of Annette Rudy, long time WASM member. As Annette Wolfstein-Joseph says, “Annette Rudy was a member of WASM for a number of years. She served on the board when I was still on it and we were two of the three Annette’s on the board at that time. She was a very gracious and lovely person”.
Please visit Paperman’s to leave a message of condolence:

Postponed Event:

As you most likely already know, many cities across the United States and Canada are experiencing mass protests for the Black Lives Matter movement. This is a conversation that is long overdue for the country and the world-at-large. In support of those collective voices protesting, we have made the decision to yield The National Arts Drive and postpone the date to Saturday, June 20, 2020.
