Time is flying by, summer is almost over - not that it will be getting any cooler, but the kids will be going back to school this month. Last year I began thinking it was time to start thinning out my UFOs and stash, but the thought was as far as I got. Thanks to last month’s UFO program I have sorted through the UFOs and I have chosen one to finish. I know it’s not much, but it is a start. Sometimes you have to take baby steps.
Also at last month’s meeting, we had a chance to revisit some of our Guild’s history. Did you get a chance to look at the photo albums? It was great to hear founding member LaVerne Johnson speak and Sandy read an email from founding member Bonnie Askowitz. Technology is great! We have a Yahoo group, a Facebook page and a website that can all store the guild history, but it sure is nice to have a photo album in your hands to reminisce about our past. We have not had a Historian for many years, and it may seem an overwhelming job – again, baby steps. I suggested that someone take the job for one year, from Installation Luncheon to Christmas Party and that person create a photo album or yearbook for one year. Ellen Sherman has volunteered to chronicle 2016. Since the year is half over Ellen needs some assistance. If you have taken pictures during the year please let Ellen know what you have, and are willing for her to include in the album.
