The Word From Mary


The holidays are over, and it is time to get organized for the new year. Anyway, this sounds like a good idea.

At our January general meeting, we were looking forward to hearing about Lydia Bodnar-Balahutrak’s trip to Chornobyl. She toured ten years after the disaster. What she brought to share turned out to be touching. Lydia showed slides of the dead trees, abandoned playground and empty buildings. Then, she showed us slides of her paintings and collages. These works were filled with her feelings of her homeland.

Our February 1, 2020 general meeting will feature author, Judithe Little. She will tell us about the process of writing, and then finding an editor and publisher for her first novel. Award winning Wickwythe Hall is a historical novel about life in England during WWII. After Ms. Little’s presentation we will have a potluck brunch. Bring your favorite sweet or savory dish to share.
