ANNUAL MEETING/ HOLIDAY PARTY
November 18, 2017
The Annual Meeting/Holiday Party for 2017 will be held on Saturday, November 18th. It will also be held at Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Singleton Way, Virginia Beach. More details as the year unfolds, however, please plan to bring Show and Tell – even if it is in a more casual format this year. I know many of you make such beautiful items – and that is part of my joy in participating in the guild. Also this year’s baskets by the Neighborhood Groups were a great fundraiser. Betty Duron crunched our numbers and this year surpassed last year’s ticket sales. Several of the neighborhood groups are going to plan to do things during the year to make their group basket. I heard of one group that is going to try to make a small project each month and include all of them in the gift. Another group talked of bringing one item from your sewing room – loved or unloved – and donating it to the basket. I also heard that their used to be a group that made and raffled American Girl Doll clothes…….
