Joan B conducted our last meeting of our official quilting season, and her last meeting as Coordinator. A new Executive will take their offices in September. Reports were given by several committee heads.
Thanks were extended to the "old" executive members, and the "new" executive members were introduced. A few meeting details were discussed and the directions given for our AUCTION to raise money for Cottonmill Guild. Then:
