Regional Pot-Luck Extravaganzas planned! 

The Committee for the Advancement of Post-Dogmatst Communal Activities recently announced plans to conduct several Post-Dogmatist Regional Pot-Luck extravaganzas for this summer as a practice run for next year’s International Pot-Luck Extravaganza and Camp-Out. Plans are in the works to have a weekend gathering of members of the International Post-Dogmatist Group for the summer of 1995 in some central location of the USA. All members are invited to propose a scenic location for this gathering perhaps in a national or state park campground. What ever locations that you would care to propose, please be sure to pick a sight close enough to motel accomodations etc. for those members who wish to attend but don’t want to ‘rough’ it. In keeping with Post-Dogmatist traditions, there will not be any formal events of any kind other than gathering for meals and conversation. But that will be in 1995. This Summer, the regional pot-luck extravaganzas will take the form of an afternoon cook-out/picnic in each of the four regions of the USA (each region is devided by time zones) This year’s shindig will be on the last Sunday in July but contact your Regional Administrator or District Director for more information regarding exact times and locations. In the next issue, which will be coming out in September, we will report on what happened around the country. New Members 

The International Post-Dogmatist Group is pleased to welcome the following new members: composer James Brody from Baltimore, painter Carol Wilder from Dallas, painter/musician Keith Lymon from Fort Worth, artist/writer Lanny Quarles from Wichita Falls, gallery owner Edith Baker from Dallas, Architect Tex Leidtka from Dallas, adjudicator Nancy Cohen from Dallas.
