Our New Office

On September 30th volunteers helped move the WCPA out of storage and into our new space at the Sprinkler Factory (38 Harlow Street, Worcester).  It is filled with light during the day, has high ceilings and is adjacent to the East Gallery on the second floor of the building.  A team has  organized our library, sorting out duplicates and gotten it set-up for use.

We would love to be able to open the library during the gallery's open hours on Saturday and Sunday.  To do that we will need some fresh volunteers to open the office and talk about the WCPA.  Email wcpaboard@yahoo.com you are interested in this volunteer opportunity.

The WCPA board meets on the 1st Wednesday each month in the space between 7:00 and 8:30pm.  Meetings are open to members and are a great way to check out the new space (and learn about how the Association works).

Come check out our new office when you have a chance.

Library Update

The library committee, headed by Ann Lewis, has completed their initial work of organzing and shelving the WCPA's book collection.  Additionally the bookshelves were given new life with a fresh coat of paint by Carol Stockmal.  Ann, Carol, Judy Ferrara and John Gaumond unboxed every book, sorted it by category and then by author, and arranged the books.  There's even a little (very little really) room for some careful additions.

We are grateful for their many hours of work in sometimes cold and dusty circumstances.  Join us at our next board meeting on January 3rd to check out the library.
