Del Ray Artisans Annual Member Meeting with Elections and Halloween Costume Swap

Saturday, October 18, 5-7pm

Join fellow members for the latest DRA news, networking, and the election of next year's Board Members. Even if you are not considering being on our DRA Board, we still need your help to elect our willing volunteers. Those attending will also be the first to hear the "unveiling" of our 2015 calendar of shows! Our artist members will be able to start their planning now!

The meeting is free, and a light supper of sandwiches, beverages and dessert will be offered. If you have any questions, please contact Linda Elliff, Director of Membership, at

If you are interested in running for a Board Position or have questions, contact the volunteer Nominating Committee (Derek Hall, Maria Illingworth, and John Messina) at

Costume Swap

Halloween Costume Swap

That's right – dig deep into the funkier recesses of your closet. Drag out some creative duds and accessories, because we'll have a costume swap event during the membership meeting. This will also be your last opportunity to snag one of the creatively decorated masks in the mask silent auction. The Mask-erpiece Silent Auction ends at 6pm.
