President’s Message

Can it really be Spring?? Wow, April was brutal, including an April Guild meeting that was on the verge of being cancelled due to winter weather. Holy cow! But here we are, back with warm weather, daffodils, pollen, flying bugs, etc., and that means our Guild year will be drawing to a close in June. How fast this year has gone by!

We’ll be voting on executive officers at the May meeting. The slate of officers has been presented by our nominating committee, but if you or someone you know wants to be included for any position prior to voting, you need to let us know right away.

A lot goes on behind the scenes to keep our guild humming along. The Board of Directors doesn’t plan just for next month’s meeting, it plans for next year’s meetings, and beyond. To do that in the most effective way for our members, we need to know what YOU want Cornerstone Quilters to be so it remains a vibrant and important part of your lives. Included in the newsletter is a questionnaire that the Board invites you to fill out and return (anonymously) at either the May or June meeting. We’ll have a box available for you to drop your responses into. You can always email or snail-mail any member of the Board, as well. Your input is so important, please let us know what you think!

The second “Reveal” of the year will be done at the May meeting. Participants in the Architectural Challenge will be displaying how they interpreted a photo of a building/structure provided by our Vice-President, Monique Fontaine. This is sure to be interesting! The final Challenge Reveal, for the Whisper Challenge, will be at the June meeting. Also at the May meeting, Cornerstone Collectibles will be having a “Blowout!” sale, so plan to do some shopping! If you haven’t yet renewed, please do so this month so you don’t get dropped from the mailing list. You don’t want to miss a thing!

And speaking of the June meeting— we’ll be having a social get-together in the lower level of the Charlton Baptist Church, with potluck finger food. It’s not necessary to bring something to share, but the more the merrier, yes? Please include a serving utensil if your dish requires one. The setup for the June meeting will begin at 11:30 a.m., and extra help is always welcome, both before and after. Also, please bring your red, white, and blue quilts in June to display in honor of the National Holidays coming up. As a reminder, the June meeting will be the second Sunday, on June 10th. Cornerstone Collectibles has a great Silent Auction planned for that event. Plan to place your bids!!

Susan Burns, President
