Convention. Registrations for convention banquet, Friday box lunch and Thursday workshop were distributed.  Convention duties were discussed again.

State Fair:  Regina and Ellen reported that a lawsuit had been filed against the Indiana State Fair and IWOCP received a subpoenaed for specified records said lawsuit. Regina will present them although many are not available .  The State Fair has offered IWOCP the opportunity to continue to display at the State Fair for one dollar but will not be involved in giving ribbons. After much discussion, the motion was made by Joyce Dwulet that IWOCP continue to display only at the fair and that no ribbons will be awarded except for a People's Choice Award chosen by the general public.  This will be an exhibit only and no competition.  There will be no ribbons and no awards,and all members are encouraged to display their paintings and demonstrations will still be given.  The motion was seconded by Leanna Sherman.  The vote was unanimous by all attending.  Attending members were Irene Adams, Regina Vandivier, Stephanie Manley, Laura Taube, Sharen Edwards, CJ Laster, Betty Ward, Neva Boyce, Lutska Bryant, CC Jung, Carol Pshese, Norma Keller,Shirley Buis,Leanna Sherman, Ellen Wilson- Pruitt,joyce Dwulet, Sherry Hoefling Linda Lane.
