Reminder: For our regular meetings, please remember to bring your own drinks, library books, name tags, Show & Share items, Comfort Quilts and a Food Bank Donation. Non-perishables or personal items such as diapers, soap, toothpaste, shampoo, etc., are gladly accepted.

Name Tags– Please find your name tag (quilted, embellished or otherwise) and wear it at the meeting!  It’s always great to put a name to a face and some of us just can’t remember everyone’s name! It a great way to we get to know each other better.  Your new presidents have made an executive order… oh no, that’s an executive decision isn’t it… there will be no prizes given to anyone without a name tag on. If you somehow forget your name tag, there will be some available at the sign in desk.
