Kathy Cook and Nancy Powell presented Modern Mythbusters.
Attendance: 42 members, 6 new members, and 4 guests
This month’s meeting began with an icebreaker for members and guests to encourage people to meet each other and learn more about BNMQG. Icebreaker sheets were to be kept by people as a reference for people. An extra 10 minutes was given as people were very involved. The business meeting began at 6:10. Nancy P. started the meeting with her vision for the guild: “to support and encourage the growth and development of modern quilting through education, art, and community.”
Outgoing officers were recognized for their service and given a small token of appreciation for their dedication to the guild – Stormy H. and Kathy M. – co presidents in 2018-2019; Cathie H. – vice president 2018-2019 who will now be the MQG guild liaison; and Teresa Arendell – secretary 2017 – 2019.
New officers were introduced: Kathy Cook – vice president (not present), Betty Woodruff – treasurer, and Gale Imig – secretary (not present).
