KGS News September 2014 

Hope you are having a great summer and that your gourds are producing a bumper-crop of thick-shelled beauties!

The results of the elections of Setember 20th are:
    President: Leann Scott
    Secretary: Nona Boughman
    Treasurer: Marilyn Sweazy
    Director: Pablo Briseño
    Director: CeCe Thomas
    Director: Jane Waits

The members present appointed Jane Waits to fill the office of Vice president since this office was vacated by Leann Scott. New Directors were also appointed since there were directors that no longer wished to serve or were appointed to fill offices.  If you would like to review our constitution and by-laws, they are available on the ABOUT tab, at the bottom of the page.

Check the WORKSHOPS tab for details of the Sherry Briscoe workshops Friday, November 7th and Saturday, November 8th. She will be teaching four techniques including Oil Paint Sticks, Woodburning on Canvas, Tenerife and Thunder Drums. All of them are projects she has designed specially for KGS members.

We are working on the 2015 Gourd Show Booklet, If you have a new entry class you'd like to see, or a change to make things easier to understand, now is the time to bring it up. Please email your suggestions to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

We also need help with our website. There are multiple opportunities ranging from submitting a single article to becoming a web editor. These are non-elected positions and would be shared by several people.  If you can submit an article, a tutorial, or a brief biography it will help to keep our website alive. We will work with you to make the process as painless as possible. No need to worry about your writing style or skills. We will be glad to help. If you have something to contribute, please contact Carol at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

As with all gourd societies, KGS depends on the support of its members to sustain the vitality of our organization. Please volunteer to help assure the future of your society.
