Hiram Butler sends us this invitation to an opening of the work of Kyung-Lim Lee, the partner of James Turrell:
An exhibition of drawings by Kyung-Lim Lee will open at
11:00 am - 1:00 pm Saturday 16 January 2010
Devin Borden Hiram Butler Gallery
4520 Blossom Street
Houston, TX 77007
Please join us for a preview and a cup of coffee
I know both James and Kyung would appreciate your attendance and the opportunity to say hello. They plan to spend the night and attend early meeting for worship the next day.
I'm frequently asked, "What do you do at an opening?" Answer: Come fifteen to twenty minutes late as the artist is always a few minutes late. Walk around and look at the exhibition and then say hello to the artist and tell them something nice about their work. If you have time, have a cup of coffee and spend fifteen minutes talking to someone else you might know in attendance.
Children are welcome, it is one of the reasons we have our openings on Saturday morning.
For wheel chair access, come to the back of the gallery and up the ramp. Either call us from your cell or knock on the back door and we'll open up.
I do hope you can make it.

The Houston Peace and Justice Center will participate (walk) in the MLK Day Parade sponsored by the Black Heritage Society on January 18. Individual HPJC organizations can bring a sign or banner for their organization and join us (HPJC has registered for the parade, so member groups should not have to do the same unless they want to). The parade begins at 10 am in downtown Houston - corner of Jackson and Texas near Minutemaid Park. We will assemble about 9:00 am so we are ready to go at 10:00 a.m. We will probably be marching close to the KPFT float.
Go to the KPFT website (www.kpft.org) for all the activities surrounding MLK Day.

Are you able to plan a regular amount to contribute and have it withdrawn from your account automatically every month? Would you like to avoid the hassle of writing paper checks, looking up the treasurer's address, and then finding you are out of stamps? Would you like to save 42 cents? Would you like to help our treasurer by making your contributions in the simplest way possible, making her job easier and saving trips to the bank on her motorcycle to make deposits? Automatic withdrawal is available for your contributions to Live Oak Friends Meeting. The treasurer will thank you.

To initiate this service, the treasurer needs a voided check from your account, showing the account number, the name on the account, and the routing number of your bank. Fill out the check with the amount you would like your monthly withdrawals to be and fill out the day of the month on which you would like the withdrawal to occur. Then write "VOID" across the check and give it to Treasurer. You can leave it in the contribution box.
You say you want to earmark your contribution as one half for Operating and one half for Construction? You can do that. Just send Susan a note [slongyah@yahoo.com] telling her in which fund(s) to distribute your donation, or write it on your voided check. If nothing is specified, the full amount of your contribution will be deposited in the Operating Fund.
