Our Spring Membership meeting is coming right up, on April 7th. There will be reports from our hardworking board members to bring you up-to-date on all the news. I’m sure our Education committee will have exciting information on the classes we will be presenting for 2018 and beyond. The Retreat Committee will have a wrap up of this year’s fun and teasers from the ladies from Homer who will be assuming the Retreat responsibilities for the next two years.
This spring meeting is also when we hold elections for officers whose terms are expiring. The Treasurer’s position will need to be filled. My term as your president will also end in April. Please contact the Nominating Committee if you are interested in the adventure of leadership.
I have sincerely enjoyed serving another term. The Guild and every one of you members are truly dear to my heart. One of my favorite benefits of being a member of the Guild (and especially an officer) is that I have made lifelong friendships with people who share my passion for quilting. I have learned all sorts of helpful things from you. You have all been willing to help in any way you could to accomplish the mission of this organization and I sincerely thank you for doing your part to make the Guild just what we all dreamed it could be way back when we started.
It has been my pleasure to work with all of you, and even more of a joy to sew and laugh and learn with you. I must confess though, I have a new interest that I will surely be spending time on. My new granddaughter, Lily Grace, was born on March first and I’m looking forward to getting to know her.
So, see you on April 7th, and be sure to save me a spot at the fun events coming up.
