When: Thursday, April 12, at 6:00 p.m.
Fingers crossed, winter should be over by April 12, so let’s all plan to leave the cozy confines of our homes to mingle. If you joined or rejoined GVA since 2016, bring yourself and a guest if you like. We’ll answer any questions you may have about GVA’s past, and we’ll share exciting future plans. Some of us have already have met some of you, but none of us have met all of you. It’s time!

So GVA members, old and new, bring your appetite and a pasta dish to share (hot or cold), and we could use some salads, too. If you bring a hot dish, please bring a way to keep it warm. GVA will provide rolls, wine, water, coffee and cookies.

At about 7:30 p.m., Randy Nyhof will be showing a 60-minute BBC episode of The Power of Art on Vincent van Gogh for all who can stick around to see it.

If you’re bringing a dish to share please email me (Joanne Swann) at or text or call and leave a message at 616 406-8648. I will also post a sign-up sheet at the studio as well so I get an idea of the number of people participating.

Hope to see you there. Please note the earlier start time, 6:00 p.m.
