Current Projects:
At our monthly meetings, we raffle a "Moss" item. Tickets are $1.00/ea or 6/$5.00. Most meetings we have a guest speaker and we always have delicious refreshments. Come join us for a night of fun celebrating Pat Moss' love for art and children.

The print entitled "Colonial Winter" by P. Buckley Moss, will be raffled by Moss in the Country as the major fundraiser for 2007. The print has been beautifully framed by the Apple Barn Gallery in Buchanan, VA. and has a value of $800. The drawing will be held November 19, 2007. Tickets are $1.00 each.

The recipients of 2007/2008 fundraising will be The Achievement Center and the Blue Ridge Autism Center of Roanoke. The proceeds will be divided equally between these two most worthy causes.
