The Annual Luncheon was held at noon on Thursday, October 12th at the Cedar Creek Club, with Anne as hostess. Jean provided beautiful fresh bouquets of flowers at each place setting and as table centerpieces.
Jean thanked the entire group for a very successful year, including the welcoming of four new members and producing a great quilt show!
Kate gave a complete financial report for the year, including a substantial increase in quilt show revenue over previous shows.
Maggie shared a lovely note from a friend of the group complementing our quilt show and then recognized all members for their contributions to its success. She also had suggestions for future shows, which we will consider later. Committee chairwomen will submit written reports on their activities to Maggie. Jean encouraged all members to consider taking on various leadership positions for the sake of spreading the responsibilities and freshening our outlook.
The winners of the Miniature Quilt Challenge were announced: Cathy- 3rd place, Kate- 2ndplace, and Robbin-1st place.
On the recommendation of our treasurer, we voted on four community organizations to receive monetary contributions to from the proceeds of the quilt show.
This was our last official business meeting for the year. Our Christmas party will be held in December at Anne's.
