President's Message

  

Ladies a new year has begun, and I am already excited about all the wonderful programs and workshops that are in store for our guild for 2019. One of My New Year’s resolutions is to work on a UFO before starting a new project. We will see how long that last. ❤️ I would like to thank all those who volunteer and make the charity quilts and those that donated the toiletries, socks, etc. Some of the quilts were taken to the 305th Court for adoption day. I was asked to deliver to GPD for Blue Santa, we also donated to the Teen Pregnancy Center and they both were so excited and could not believe all the work put into making the quilts. The toiletries, etc. were delivered by myself and 2 of my grandchildren. They loved sorting and making Christmas bags for those items. They asked all about who donated why they donated what did donation mean and who was all this stuff for? It was a valuable lesson for them, and I was glad to teach it. I am happy to announce that Bonnie New will again chair the Grand Kids Festival. She has been so wonderful in taking this responsibility yet another year. A sign-up sheet will be at our next meeting and I know she would appreciate volunteers to be with her at the event and to make the mini quilts for the kids. You can read her article for more information. Veronica Cox has volunteered to take over as Retreat chair and will soon be giving us news about our upcoming retreat/retreats. Thank all of you for making our guild so wonderful!!! Patricia
