June Banquet

An enjoyable evening was held once again at the Highland Golf and Country Club for our year end banquet. The banquet evening is always a relaxed social evening with good food and a good speaker. We were welcomed by the efficient ladies at the registration table, Amelia, Karen and Lorainne. Here they are greeting our speaker for evening, Johnnene Maddison.

Each place setting had a FQ and a small hexagon paper piecing kit:

We socialized over drinks and chatted with various fellow guild members:

The salad was as good as it looked:

We had a choice of salmon for dinner.....

...or chicken. Jill printed fish and chickens on her computer so the servers would know who ordered what :-).

.....a wonderful chocolately dessert!!

Rose was presented with a lovely quilt made of blocks sewn by various members of the guild including signature blocks. Rose was very surprised! Amazing what goes on at the meetings when the President thinks we are all listening to her :-)

We enjoyed our speaker, Johnnene Maddison from London, Ontario tell us about her art. The stories behind the various pieces are always so interesting and really help us to appreciate the work even more:
