Autumn has arrived in Harford County with a blast of cool air, the first frost, and splashes of bright colors in the leaves of the sycamores, maples, tulip poplars, oaks, sassafras, dogwoods, and various other trees that line the rural roads of the home county of the Gunpowder Pen Women.
Our members continue to pursue their art work and writing projects, and compete in various competitions.
We were lucky to have a wonderful presentation by Virginia Pen Woman, Sylvia Hoehns Wright, in the spring, and hope to offer another wonderful program soon.
We wish for each of you a creative autumn!
