Thanks to everyone that attended our November Meeting. Our December meeting is a potluck and starts at 6:00 PM - St. Luke's. Hostesses are: Kelly Stodola & Bridget Larson Please remember to bring a Xmas stocking you have created to the meeting if you wish to participate in the donation. We will decide organization to receive the stockings at the December meeting. We will play the dice game, so bring a fat quarter if you wish to participate. Retreat funds are due (please see retreat info below.) If you have not paid your dues, those are also due. Please bring your Show & Tell! November Meeting Notes: Meeting began with a brief update on the October meeting info and the letter sent out to members. We then participated in a group session led by Eileen Van Dyk. This session was very valuable to determining next steps for the guild. Good news is that we are staying a guild! More info on updates to come. Nominations for President (Eileen Van Dyk) and Secretary (JoDee Johnston) were made and approved. Congratulations to our new officers! October Meeting minutes and Treasurer's Report were approved. We sent out a check to the Hudson High School Band Hawaii fundraiser for $579.00. Correspondence: Lori sent in a $40 donation to the guild due to our giving of a caring quilt to Louie Armstrong. Retreat - Sign-ups went around having members say Yes/No/Maybe to retreat. Retreat Cost is $102 for 4 people in a room. $94 for 5-7 people in a room. Most people seemed to prefer 4 people in a room.
