September 2017 Meeting Recap

Submitted by Teresa A., Secretary

Happy 5th Birthday to us!  We celebrated our fifth year of being together as the B-N Modern Quilt   Guild.  There were even cupcakes and punch to celebrate the occasion provided by our Hospitality Committee chair, Paula M. and Betty D. As we left for the evening, we were given a fat quarter “cupcake” in honor of the guild’s 5th birthday.

Kathy thanked everyone for attending our sew days, field trips, taking Heart Beat kits, and bringing refreshments.  The more we all participate in our guild, the stronger our guild becomes!

At this month’s meeting we had 41 members, 7 guests and 5 new members!  Welcome to our new members, Heather B., Connie F., Marsha H., Sharon O., and Leslie S.  We look forward to getting to know you and are so happy to have you join our BNMQG.

Kathy presented an appreciation gift to Ann U., outgoing secretary and Ann G. outgoing treasurer.  Thank you both for sharing your talents and commitments to the guild. We wish Ann G. the best with her new adventures in California. Please come back to visit us sometime soon!
