Meeting Highlight - March 13, 2019

Members Present:  Jackie, Karen, Patty, Valia

Patty read the first two chapters of The Iron Ladies. A few members suggested reworking the beginning chapters so that a devastated Vienne is alone with Pippi struggling with the news of what is to come. Patty plans to participate in Camp NaNoWriMo again this year. The fun begins April 1st

Karen is working on chapter 6 of Saving Ivy. She recently entered into a partnership with The Military Order of the Purple Heart. They sent out a letter to members which encourages them to purchase two The Medal With A Heart books so they can donated one to their local library. Karen is anxious to hear how many people ordered. She then discussed Purple Heart Cities. Karen has another school visit scheduled in Boswell, IN.

Valia read “Facets of Refugee Status” which is a series of three poems he wrote. He also suggested members look into humanities grants available to Hoosiers.

Jackie reported that she is a Hoosier Women Artist honoree and will take down a framed picture of Cataract Falls on March 22nd for the artist reception. Her picture will hang in the treasurer’s office in the Indiana State Capitol building for a year.

Next Meeting:  (A week later) April 17th, 2019.
