13 of our club members gathered at the Orange District (OD) Art Festival on the 13th of January at the Phoenix Club in Anaheim.  The OD Art Festival had several contests; photography, paintings. trash to treasure, and short stories.

The club submitted a total of eleven pieces into the different contests.  We have come to expect wonderful results from our club members as we have so many talented ladies. This year we did not get disappointed, as we had winners in almost all contests.   

Linda Woods received an honorable mention for one of her paintings, Linda Queen took home first prize in the ‘Trash to Treasure’ contest, with Susie Autry receiving an honorable mention in the same contest.  In the photography contests, Linda Queen received 1st place for her entry in the ‘Still Life 'color’ category.   

Congratulations to all the winners in the Orange District Art Festival.  You all did a fantastic job.
