 Our next meeting will be held on Monday, May 3rd @ 7:00 p.m. at the Solid Ground Restaurant, 412 S McCulloch Blvd. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Come and enjoy refreshments before the meeting begins.

 The May program is “What Makes a Winner” presented by Barbara Broushous.

 We had 32 LUV quilts donated last month. 25 were baby quilts and 7 others. I want to thank everyone who worked so hard to make sure we could donate to the CSU-Pueblo organization. There were 6 left over from March so we made the 30 that was needed.
