I am happy to start my term as your new Membership Coordinator! First, let’s say a great big THANK YOU to Joan Herrin, for her years in this position. Joan always had a friendly hello waiting for us at the sign-in desk, and kindly spent time whipping me into shape to be her humble replacement. Thanks, Joan!

If you haven’t yet renewed your Guild membership for 2017/2018, it’s never too late. The dues for this year are $60.00. Your current membership expired on February 28, 2017 but membership renewals will be accepted at any meeting. For those who have already renewed, your new membership cards will be ready for pick-up at our March meeting.

A membership renewal form is on our Guild website. Just go along the headings at the top of the page and click on the ‘Members’ heading. Then go down to ‘join or renew’. This is a PDF file which will allow you to type in your information, print it off, sign it and then drop it off at the membership table with cash or a cheque for $60.00 made out to ‘Lions Gate Quilters Guild’ or ‘LGQG’. This form cannot be saved but can be printed off so you can hand write on it also. Please help us save paper by printing off your own form.

The guild currently has 85 members and we need more…. so please consider renewing if you haven’t yet done so. We had 51 members present at the February AGM and Guild meeting where we also welcomed 1 new member. The door prizes were won by Linda Heese and Laurel Hickey.

Remember to wear your nametags if you would like to win a door prize. Everyone who signs in has an opportunity to win. Nametags are available at the membership table for $1.00 each, if you forgot yours.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.

Happy Stitching!

Katherine Morgan, Membership Coordinator
