November 18: Christmas Prep (Cookies!)

November Meeting

Please join us for our regularly scheduled meeting, Sat., November 18 at 10 a.m. We will be meeting at the Bell Tower Arts Pavilion building. Danna Thomas will be sharing what brought her to the Guild, doing writing on her specialty, cookies. She will provide all the needed supplies to show us what it takes to write on sugar cookies. Just in time for your holiday baking.

Real Talk: Membership

Dear Members,

First I want to thank you to the few of you who have paid dues for this year, the GCCG greatly appreciates it. For those who still would like to pay you may use this link from our Web site to pay via PayPal with a slight service charge. Conversely, if you would like to write a check to the GCCG and bring it to the meeting on Nov. 18 or you may mail it to me, GCCG, c/o Jennifer Carroll, 1285 Stubbs Mill Rd., Lebanon, OH 45036.

If you are on the fence about sending your $30 dues, let me tell you what your charitable donation helps the GCCG do.

  • Pay for our meeting space at the Bell Tower Arts Pavilion, at $25 each meeting.
  • Pay Tiffany for the updating of our Web site and keeping our domain name / host server current.
  • Pay honorariaum to our monthly presenters. (Although many do not take it and we thank them for that)
  • Printing of any brochures and other items needed for the events that we participate in. 
  • Lastly, our library is available to members.
  • List your name and business on our Web site for referrals.
  • We are 503(c) (I hope I have that number correct) charitable organization so your dues are tax deductible.

We haven’t collected dues in 3 years due to Covid, and not meeting for much of that time, and while we have some money in the treasury, around $1,400, it won’t last forever and will prohibit us from expanding programming. We’d love to be able to bring internationally known calligrapher’s to town for weekend workshops, or maybe for Zoom workshops. Another way you can help is by registering your Kroger Plus card and choosing The Greater Cincinnati Calligrapher’s Guild as your designated charity. We then get a percentage from each purchase made at Kroger. Currently, one family, mine, is contributing to this. We get a check from the program every 6 months or so.

Thank you for your time.
Jennifer Carroll, President
