The Blue Ridge Pottery Club meeting was held on Sept. 1 at the Maple Grove Restaurant in Unicoi at 5:30 p.m. Seventeen members attended. We all ordered off the menu and had a nice supper.
Gina Clark opened the meeting for discussion on several topics. Dianne Banks gave the treasurer’s report. The minutes were emailed to the members as announced at our last meeting and approved.
In spite of not having the Blue Ridge Pottery Show this year, we discussed designing a new ticket for winning a set of Blue Ridge dishes.
Joey Lewis will work with Danielle Jones on the new $1 tickets. We will notify the general public when the tickets are ready.
The club members voted to have a yard sale on Saturday, Oct. 3, from 8 a.m. to noon at the Senior Center.
The sale will be run by the Blue Ridge Pottery members and will include their pottery and their excess household goods.
Larna Smith provided our program for the evening. She shared her one-of-a-kind Blue Ridge Pottery. At least one of the pieces was a factory sample.
The door prize winner of the Blue Ridge Pottery salt and pepper shakers was Sheila Benedetto.
Our next meeting will be Oct. 6 at Maple Grove Restaurant at 5:30 p.m.
