President's Newsletter

Greetings and Salutations,

It is time to write another Newsletter, I am not certain exactly what to write as it has been a very busy month. I guess we will start with the June program by Cyndi McChesney which was ‘Reheated Leftovers’. It was a fun program – in some cases it was an affirmation of things we are already doing to some extent, it also gave us some outstanding things to add to our ways of collecting, keeping and using the leftovers from past quilts. We will be looking into classes by Cyndi and let you know when, where and the cost, hopefully soon. 

We have been really busy with ‘Quilts for Joplin’ and ‘Bama Bound Quilts’. I am certain you all have been as busy too. After several days at the library we have gotten several quilts completed and know there are more out there. The group going to Joplin, who has offered to transport them, will be leaving on Saturday, July 9th so we will need to get them all together prior to that time. We would like to have them all collected on or before by July 6th, please call Nina at 647-9010 or Evie at 647-2936, to make arrangements for drop off.

July - - - - is finally here – - - - soon there will no more enticing secrecy – the Board is excited to present this program and Fund Raiser, as is the Committee, which is made up of Jean, Sandy McD, Patsy, Carolyn, Carol H., Barbara, Nina and Evie. ‘Come to the Fair’ promises to be fun and a bit hectic,  as we will have many things to see, to purchase and to win – well, how can you go wrong with that combination? ! ? ! ? ! ?

There is a $2 Fair Entrance fee for Members and the usual $3 Guest Fee will include Fair Entrance.  Some things you can know at this time – a Baked Goods table which we need items for, 2 (count them) 2 Ways and Means table – again bring your items to add to these tables. New! Never before seen items are planned for release at this time – you too will want at least one! Bring your items to assist in having lots for sale.

This is a great meeting to invite your friends and neighbors. There will be some wonderful ideas and opportunities, plus some awesome things to be purchased. J


I hope to see you all at the ‘Fair’ (oh, meeting), Monday, the 11th of July 2011, at Gabby’s Diner & Catering doors are open at 6:30 p.m.
