On October 6 - 8, 2017, members Joan Rog and Patty Walsh enjoyed the Lambda State Creative Arts Retreat at the beautiful Lorado Taft Campus in Oregon, IL. While Joan spent the weekend enjoying arts and crafts workshops, Patty arrived on Saturday and enjoyed a dance workshop and two writing workshops. In the dance workshop, Patty worked with Lambda State sisters to learn choreography for Razzle Dazzle 'Em from the musical Chicago. In the writing workshops, Patty connected with sisters from Lambda State who have been successful at writing and publishing their works. To share conversation with women authors and aspiring women authors was truly engaging and inspiring. Patty will cherish memories of this afternoon for years to come and hopes to maintain connections with these truly amazing women!
