Our new member, Julia Kirt, is receiving the Michi Susan Award from the Paseo Arts District at their Awards Dinner & Auction last week. The Michi Susan Award is given each year to a person who consistently offers support, mentorship, or encouragement to other artists.

In Positive Tomorrows board elections, Scott Calhoun was elected as a new board member and Todd Lechtenberger was re-elected for a second term. Todd was also re-elected chairman of the board of directors.

Nathaniel Harding and his bicycle were featured in a very cool article in the Journal Record about his two wheeled chosen mode of transportation to and from work.

The Governor’s Art Council has awarded The George Nigh Public Service in the Arts Award recognizing an Oklahoma government official or entity for outstanding support of the arts to Mayor Mick Cornett.

Our club members Jennifer and Larry Anderson just returned safely from Paris, thankfully. Friday night I was with Malo our exchange student from Bordeaux and his friend Jonas a D-5750 exchange student also from France as the events in Paris unfolded. Jonas’ aunt lives on the same street as the theater but again thankfully she is safe.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, the survivors, their families, their friends and all of France as they recover and rebuild their lives from this senseless, horrific tragedy.
