This month's meeting was chaired by Joan B. Thanks to Joan for capably substituting in Jennifer’s sad situation.
We all were saddened to hear of the death of our Coordinator Jennifer S's Mom. Our sincere condolences to Jennifer and her family.
As well, we had a moment of silence for Louise Moore, a long standing CMQG member who died last Thursday. In her kindness, Louise left her quilting goods to us at CMQG. Thank you Louise and Cecile who transported everything.
There were reports from Library, we are still missing the WALK book that was new to our library. (PLEASE return this fabulous book).
Also reports also from Charity, Programs, Block Lotto, Workshop and Registration committees which will be reported on by Dianne K in our minutes next month.
The new Block Lotto is the maple leaf, to be done on a white or cream background in any life like leaf colour that you desire.
