A surprise happened at our Jan 2nd meeting. There was a good size crowd even though it was the day after a holiday. There were also several quilts displayed with family stories and historical information to go with them. One in particular got almost everyone up from their seats in amazement.
The library has been completely overhauled and we had an extra-long break so that everyone could shop and buy the bargain books from the thinning out. The book sale will continue next month as well.
Many reminders went out to let everyone know that there are several positions that need to be filled for the rest of the year. I am hoping that now that the holidays are over, lots of people will be wanting something to do. Advertising and publicity need someone to get notices to the newspaper and send out bills to our advertisers. The newsletter is up for grabs, I have my computer literate daughter working on it at this point. Gathering docents for the Best of the Valley Quilt Show on the first weekend in April. Free tickets involved there. As you can see we need a few hands on deck.
Everyone should be reading their Newsletter for all the updated information, such as the budget and minutes. They were not available at our meeting which helped to keep it short and sweet but nonetheless I think very enjoyable.
Our meeting next month will feature guest speaker Ann Hinan from Tulare with no doubt a wonderful program.
Wishing you all a wonderful 2014, which I hope will be full of enthusiasm for the Guild.
