Wow, it’s hard to believe that our Guild year has flown by so fast!! But, we still have lots of stuff going on, never fear!!
First, the election of officers will take place at the May meeting on May 19th.
The slate of officers as presented in April by the Board of Directors is as follows:
President: Anne Pietroburgo – Vice President: Mary Piorun – Secretary: Jill Havrilla – Treasurer: Jocelyn Bouvier. These ladies all have demonstrated a strong commitment to Cornerstone Quilters and I have every confidence that they will carry out their duties to keep our Guild going strong as we approach our twentieth anniversary next year. Please give them your wholehearted support. In addition, there is still time to submit nominations for these positions, should anyone wish to do so before the May meeting. Please contact me or any member of the Executive Board to do so. I can’t say it often enough or loudly enough: our Guild runs on volunteer power, and lots of it!
There are still slots open for next Fall’s Guild retreat. The dates are October 25-27, at the Woodbound Inn in Rindge, New Hampshire. The venue is lovely, lots of space to sew to your heart’s content, the food is excellent and the staff is very accommodating to all our needs. Please contact Ruth Haynes, Sue Therriault, or Judy Bachand to reserve your spot! Should you wish to come for the day, and not stay over, that’s always an option.
Our June meeting will be held the second Sunday of the month, June 9th. As we’ve done the past few years, the meeting will be our Summer Social to wrap things up. Anne Covino is collecting paper plates and napkins you may no longer need, and the
meeting will feature the always-bountiful and yummy Pot Luck Bonanza! Bring whatever you like to share with your quilting friends. Our theme this year is “Scraps!” So plan to bring your scrappy quilts to show and share. Two “reveals” will be done at
this meeting: the “Mystery Quilt Kit” challenge and the “Whisper” challenge. We will also be installing our new officers.
And once again, our intrepid Cornerstone Collectible team will be conducting a silent auction of very special quilt-related items. Look for more information about these in our newsletter, and also at the May meeting. The June meeting promises to be lots of
fun and it’s a great way to wrap up our Guild year!
