Programs: Wendy is following the theme “By the Book”. She has contacted nationally known speakers who are Zoom compatible. Usually, the topics follow books that the person has authored and have available for purchase. Our guild meetings will open at 5:30 pm if anyone needs help on Zoom rooms. The speaker will be first on the agenda at 6:00 pm. Sheila P. will act as monitor/IT help. Wendy will send out the meeting information which will not be made public. When the recurring meeting is ready, she will let all members know how to access.
See Upcoming Meeting Dates section above for scheduled speakers, workshops, and dates. Linda Cortright from Maine is being contacted also.
Dues; Send dues of $25/pp or $30/family by mail to Pam M. She will send out an updated list of members.
Show and Tell; Nine people shared their “shelter” projects. Please send pictures to Wendy L. who will put them in the presentation deck so we can all see the wonderful details while you narrate. She can accept pictures up to 24 hours ahead. We never turn down a great project, though.
The meeting ended at 8:18 pm.
