CMMAG Happenings: New Member Luncheon

Last month, the Guild hosted our very first New Member Luncheon, to welcome members who've recently joined our merry group.  On a bright, sunny, and unusually warm Sunday, we gathered at a Raleigh restaurant to meet, mingle and get to know each other, and the Guild a bit better.  There was lots of laughter*, good food, and sharing of information, especially about the art-filled year we have planned for 2014.  Below are some snapshots of the afternoon, culminating in our 'group shot,' of everyone who attended.  Enjoy!

*laughter rang out loudly and almost continuously when we played the "Two Truths and a Lie" getting to know you game.  Here are just a few of the truths shared among our members:  someone was bitten by a lion, another made a movie in Marrakech, another is a licensed hairstylist, someone else was a night guard at a nuclear power plant, another nearly drowned whitewater rafting, one was an opera singer, someone else stabbed a priest (!), another helped Louis Black buy a Neti pot, and yet another owns stock in a professional football team!  Many of these truths weren't guessed, which made for even more hilarity when the sometimes even more outrageous lie was selected.

This has to be one of the best ideas for the guild. Wish I could have been there. Maybe next time. So glad you made this report.

It was really neat to get to know everyone better and to share conversation and stories. Thanks for the awesome idea to whoever suggested it at our "What If We" exercise!
