President, Deb Weir
Summer is upon us, but memories of our past season linger. Here are several photos from the wonderful docent tour, The Art of the Book, at the Greenwich Arts Council on June 4.

Even though we are in the lazy, hazy days, our members are ever active. Recently the tireless Liana Moonie gave Joanne Swenson and me a tour of her studio. Delightful!

And there is still time to see Liana's stunning exhibit in Greenwich Hospital's Garden Café before it closes on July 7.

On another front, Catherine Stahl and Karen Heffner are organizing our first “meet-up.”
Here’s the story…

They are organizing a "spontaneous meet up" at the NEW Whitney near the High Line on Wednesday, July 15. You can reach Catherine at or 203-273-2711, or Karen, or her cell 203-536-6648. Anybody interested in meeting them should contact one of them for specific meet-up timing, etc. 

I am going and hope you will, too!
Happy summer to all!

A Special Note of support from all GPW members as Deb journeys to Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia on July 1 where her beloved husband, Maj. Michael B. Weir, J.D., USMC, will be buried with full military honors on July 2. We wish Deb and sister GPW member, Rev. Dr. Joanne Swenson, who will officiate, Godspeed.
