We had 71 members attending our January 23rd Guild meeting, plus 4 guests, for a total of 75 attending. One of the guests joined the Guild at the mid-meeting break!
The door prize winners were Cathy Keely (a guest) and member Linda Dunlop. Remember to wear your nametag if you would like to win a door prize; everyone who signs in have an opportunity to win. Nametags are available at the membership table for $1.00 each, if you forgot yours.
Membership Renewals: The Membership Registration/Renewal Forms for 2018 – 2019 are now posted on our website. Fees for the coming year are $80, which includes 4 tickets for this year’s Quilt Show. To make renewal easier, please take a moment to fill out and download the form, and bring it to the meeting along with your payment – easy! There will also be forms available at the Membership desk if you prefer. As usual, this year’s form asks you to check off whether or not you consent to your name, address and phone number being put on the list distributed to non-Executive members. New this year, we are also asking if you agree to share your email address for the same purpose (Guild business between Guild members), so please check yes or no for that as well.
At our January 23rd Guild meeting, 40 members already renewed their membership for the 2018 – 2019 membership year – thank you all! Remember, our membership year goes to the end of February, and you must be a member in good standing as of the close of the Guild AGM on February 27th 2018 to be eligible to enter a quilt in the 2018 show. Please take care of your membership renewal this month; we need those quilts in our show…and we need you in our Guild!
Also new, the Executive has voted to up the fee for guests at Guild meetings. We will continue to welcome guests to their first meeting at no charge. They are then welcome to come as guests two more times for $10 per meeting, after which we encourage them to join our Guild.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
