Monthly meetings
   We usually meet the fourth Tuesday of the month. The meetings begin at 5:30 with a social hour, followed by the business meeting at 6pm and the monthly program / art demo at approximately 6:30pm. An arts-related program highlights each meeting. Also, three PAL members bring samples of their work to display every month.

   In July we present the Summer Art Festival and the Members' Summer Art Show. We elect new officers at our September meeting and dues for the upcoming year are payable at that time. Visitors and newcomers are welcome at every PAL event.

Volunteer -- PAL's success and relevance is equal to the volunteer committment of our members. We encourage you to take an active role in your Art League by chairing or serving on a committee, by helping during the Summer Art Festival and other events and activities or by participating in other ways.
