Upcoming May Meeting

The next meeting of the London Friendship Quilters Guild will be held
Thursday, May 8th, 2014
at
7.00 PM
at St George's Church on Dundas St
 
The May meeting is our Annual General Meeting where we discuss changes that may need to be made within the Guild.  This year we need to update our Constitution.  Please read the updated Constitution on the right sidebar so that you can join in the discussion.  We will also be discussing the Newsletter.  The discussion will include whether we need to continue having a newsletter, what should be included in the content of the newsletter and if there is a Guild Member who is willing to be the Newsletter Editor.
The Guild Members who have volunteered to be on the 2014-15 Executive will be presented.  However, nominations from the floor for all positions will be accepted and if necessary, a vote will be held.
 
Also, at this meeting we will be seeing the Challenge Quilts made by Guild Members for the "Road Runs Through It" challenge.  There will be prizes awarded in 5 different categories for this challenge.
 
We will be having "tea, juice and treats" at break time during this meeting, so remember to bring your own mug.
 
Pat B., our Librarian, wants to remind all guild members who have books out of the Library, that they need to be returned by the May Meeting.  Also, no books can be taken out at the May Meeting.
