President's Message January 2012

Dear River City members,

Boy oh Boy, what have I gotten myself into?? Well folks, we will hit the ground running in 2012 with our first organizational meeting on Jan. 5th. I want your input to set the guild on a smooth path for the new year. There will be an meeting agenda (paper) to follow along and make notes. (Thanks for the suggestion.) A hard copy will be available at the sign-in table and if possible, one will be forwarded to you via e-mail in advance of the meeting.

We are going to start a brand new year with discussions as to programs, events, and quilt community projects. We are expanding in membership and opportunities. Growth requires change. There are some items we will consider setting aside for a while and some favorites that we shall promote and continue. There are some projects that will have a short-term focus of time. I would like to thank everyone for their generosity in sharing ideas, in expressions of support, and for stepping forward to volunteer time and leadership on committees. You have made my job so much easier.

My thanks to vice president, Debbie Hulett, and the board members for their ideas, plans, and options. They are some smart cookies with many years of experience to bring to the table. I am blessed.

Here we go!! I'll see you on Thursday.
