LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
Dear Members and Friends of TWAA,
Our lazy, hot days of summer have now given way to shorter days, cooler nights and a sprinkle of welcome rain. For Two Waters Arts Alliance, September also brings a flurry of activity with the start of school, and Colors of Autumn, an evening of fun and fundraising on September 30, celebrating our 15th anniversary, and honoring TWAA founders Kathy Bauer and Margo Macdonald. We hope you will join us!
Actually, TWAA has been far from lazy. We have a new website, new officers and committees, and a new database that will enable TWAA to manage our communications more efficiently. You may have noticed that we did not send out membership renewal notices this year, but we still DO need your membership renewals for 2017. You can renew on our website, www.twowaters.org.
We are launching new and expanded Artists in Schools programs in all of our Peninsula schools, combining art and science in a study of carnivorous plants. The Colors of Autumn (replacing Spring Fling this year) will help fund these school programs.
We are making some other changes as well to encourage greater member participation in TWAA, including more opportunities for community involvement in classes and programs (like the art classes for seniors, offered through The Mustard Seed Project).
We also want to involve more volunteers in our school and community programs and committees. YOU can help keep the arts alive and healthy on the Key Peninsula!
As always, we thank you for your interest and support
Colors of Autumn Fundraiser
Come join us at the Key Peninsula Civic Center to support art in our local community schools.

Support Two Waters Arts Alliance
Our work is largely made possible by members and donations, and we wouldn’t be able to do the work that we do without your participation. Remember that all donations are 100% tax deductible. You can easily donate on our website, and if you would like to make a donation by check, you can send them to Two Waters Arts Alliance, PO Box 868, Vaughn, WA 98394.
We’re Looking for New Members!
Know someone in the community who is interested in supporting the arts but isn’t a Two Waters Arts Alliance member yet? Pass this email along. Better yet, give away a membership this year to someone who wants to be involved in supporting the arts. All membership information can be found on the website.
