Letter from the Editor

It's the first day of Spring
And what do you know?
----More snow!

Well, the second day of Spring is sure to be nice
Yeah, right!
----More ice!


Hello Everyone,
I know many of you are wondering what happened to your February and March newsletters.  In January, I resigned from the position of Newsletter Editor and at the present time, we have no one to take over the job.  If you would like to volunteer, please let our president know of your interest.

Anna Crane and I have been working on a Forum tab for the website.  We hope this new addition will prove to be beneficial to all members of the Society.  Anna has explained the Forum and its features more fully below in the Current News section. 

In closing, I would like to thank all of you who contributed and helped to make the newsletter more interesting and fun to read.

Jill Foster

New Forum Tab

The purpose of the Member Forum is to have an area on the website for secure communication among members and to eliminate email thread confusion such as what happens during activities like  the Challenges. So far, the forum's uses will be for setting up painting dates, ongoing critiques, painting challenges, and online committee meetings. If you have suggestions for other uses, feel free to contact me.

How to use is explained below:
Contact Anna Crane for questions.

To start using the CPPS Member Forum, go to www.centralpapastel/forum and sign up using one of three options:

1. Create a login by entering your email address and creating a password.
2. Sign up using your Facebook account by clicking the "Sign up with Facebook" button
3. Sign up using your Google+ account by clicking the "Sign up with Google+" button

Once you have signed up, I will approve your membership. You will get an email notification confirming your approval, and then you can start using the forum!

You will find more directions on how to use the forum when you log in to it.

The tab will be ready for use by the afternoon of the 21st, if not before.
