Paint & Sip 2024: The Monarch Butterfly Edition

On Saturday February 24th, over a dozen 3090 members gathered at the AFSCME Vernon office to take part in Paint & Sip, an annual artistic endeavor paired with wine and finger foods. Free for registered union members to attend, the event drew a roughly even proportion of first-timers and experienced Paint & Sip-pers. It was member Renon Lyons’s first time attending, and she was looking forward to painting her version of the monarch butterfly guide canvas.

Several members described the joy of displaying their artwork from previous Paint & Sip events in their own homes, while others primarily enjoyed the camaraderie of their fellow attendees. President Larry Gates, Vice President Adda Murillo, and members of the executive board also took a turn at their easels, with Treasurer Rickk Montoya serving as the event’s informal bartender.
