Wednesday, December 9

It all starts at 6 pm downtown at the Connect Coworking building at 33 S 5th Ave, Tucson 85701. Our member Priya Lin has arranged for a great room for us to meet free of charge!  Thanks Priya!
We will start with a potluck dinner, so bring along a holiday favorite to share. SACA will provide beverages and dessert. Then we will proceed with the annual exchanging of gifts. Here are the rules:

1. Only those who bring a gift, get a gift
2. Gifts are all pottery related and can be a piece you made, some glaze, a clay tool etc.
3. Bring your gift in a brown paper sack, it’s a tradition!

Last year I walked away with a bird sculpture from Bambi Anderson which I absolutely cherish.
It will be lot’s of fun, so don’t be late! And your President has a few surprises up her sleeve.

Amazing things happen because we work together!

Your generosity has made it possible for two of the major food banks to raise tens of thousands of dollars to feed the hungry! SACA members donated over 2,000 bowls for the past two events through both Jada Ahern for Interfaith Community Services in the spring and Lil Kinslow for the fall event for Community Food Bank. Both these volunteers have worked tirelessly, getting everyone to get working, get clay distributed, get bowls glazed and fired and make the quota for each event, but they  need your help. This is a huge project and with over 200 members the SACA board has been trying to think of ways to make it easier for Jada and Lil and still make this great contribution. So we are proposing a new program titled “A Bowl A Week”
Even if you do not normally work on a shell or make bowls, there is a way for you to help. So we are asking all members to fill out the online form to tell us how you can participate.

We have an Empty Bowls event on March 5th. If you have any bowls to donate please let Jada Ahern or Lil Kinslow know as soon as possible so we can arrange for pick up or a drop off location close to you.

I am looking forward to working with you on Empty Bowls for the food insecure in Tucson. We really need the help as many of our food programs have been cut by the state just this year. I believe our food compromised community is going to have a much rougher time of it from here on out. Your help is so very appreciated.
