Sunday, June 14 – WELCOMING SUMMER PICNIC!

Everyone loves a picnic! Especially when you don’t have to start the grill! Join all of our members and their guests at our traditional finale to our fantastic year of lettering. Besides the food, we always have a fun lettering project to be announced as the event draws nearer. Maybe we will revive the calligraphy version of Jeopardy! An accumulation of calligraphy books will be available for purchase. Enjoy chomping and chatting around the picnic tables at Antrim Shelter House in Heritage Park, 60 N. Cleveland Avenue, Westerville. Gathering begins at high noon and goes until 3 o’clock. Come for it all or just drop in for a quick visit. Brats and burgers, paper products and utensils will be supplied by the Guild. Bring your favorite side/dessert to share at a picnic and enjoy! An RSVP would be helpful, but not obligatory, to ilovlttrs@mac.com Based on numbers we will know how much meat to buy.
