President, Deb Weir
Our very productive Greenwich branch is having quite a spring, as you will see in Member News. Four of our members, Libby Collins, Wynn Jackson, Catherine Lepoutre, and Margaret Esmé Simon, were juried into the 99th Annual Juried Exhibition of the Greenwich Art Society, a wonderful accomplishment.
One of our long-standing and very productive Arts members recently celebrated her 94th birthday. We couldn’t let the occasion pass without wishing Liana Moonie a very happy year ahead. We look forward to more exhibitions featuring Liana’s work.

Our student member, Pippa Leigh, took the crown and title of Miss Greenwich on March 19 and is now eligible to compete for Miss Connecticut, 2016. Congratulations, Pippa!

In the midst of this lovely season, I’d like to remember our lovely Letters member Tina Bishop who passed away March 21. She was an editor and a writer who wrote her first novel at age 90 and completed her sixth in 2015. She is an inspiration to us all. Her memorial service will be April 7 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Michael’s church, 469 North Street, Greenwich.
