The program is planned for Monday morning, October 18, as follows:

9:15 to 10:45 AM:  Learn to draw mountains with watercolor pencils.  Each person will have a picture worthy of framing when finished.  The program will start with some fun, learning-to-draw tricks and go on from there.  All supplies will be free and available for each person to take home to continue their art careers.

11:00 AM to Noon:  Tanya Griffith on Stage!  Tanya is a one-woman show and has performed all over the world.  She is a Canton, OH-based actress who brings the characters of approximately 15 historical figures to life.  Some of her characters include Mary Todd Lincoln, The Queen Mother, Eleanor Roosevelt, Annie Oakley, Amelia Earhart, and Erma Bombeck, who was a cousin of Tanya’s.  We do not know which persona she will take on that day, but we’re sure you will get a lot of enjoyment from her presentation!

If your spouse or guest is interested in participating in this program, please send an email to the ICC Vice Chair, John Smith (, so we know how many people to expect.
