Happy May Star Arts! My lilacs are out and my sunblock is on. It is only five short weeks before we are on Star Island! This newsletter will focus on helpful information for New Shoalers and Old Shoalers, alike. For all the news that's fit for bits, see the May Newsletter

Happy Spring Star Arts! I hope everyone's spirits have lifted after our long winter. My mood has lightened knowing that we are about two months away from stepping onto the new-improved dock on Star Island. And, not to brag - - but I was playing Scrabble the other night and got to go first. I picked my tiles and"S-H-O-A-L-E-R" 72 POINTS!!! Talk about being in a good mood!
There is a lot going into the preparations for our week of June 20 - 27. In May, you will receive this year's "What to Bring and How to Get There". I am asking our workshop leaders to provide supply lists if they have them. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Barbara O'Brien. For more, see the April Newsletter

Dear Star Arts - Spring is almost here! Winter seemed extraordinarily long this year which makes the thought of a week on Star Island so much sweeter.
Have you registered yet? We have 55 reservations, including 20 New Shoalers! Think about friends and family who would love the island. Bring them along! Our goal is to have 100 conferees and we have room to grow!
The full text of our March newsletter is available for download here.

Hello Star Arts! Karen Schulz sent a wonderful You Tube video of our week on Star. Sit back, pour yourself a lime rickey or beverage of your choice...and enjoy!
I just watched on a full screen and suggest you do the same! Turn up the volume and smile.
November's newsletter will have an update from the Steering Committee's planning meeting. Good things are happening!
All the best,
Barbara O'Brien Registrar Star Arts
