Please bring a finger food and your own beverage, and enjoy some friendship and learn a thing or two from Donna! The presentation is at Noon at the West Cape May Borough Hall where our meetings were held previously. *This is not a “workshop” there won’t be any sewing at this event, just a nice afternoon with friends to talk about quilting and gather some inspiration.

New Business: Helen suggested we donate to the Millman Center for use of the beautiful facility we use with no charge. $300 for this year was suggested and Helen also proposed we also include $300 for last year too because we overlooked a donation. Floss S made a motion we donate $600 to the Lower Township Millman Center, Gail B and Shirley H second the motion, and the motion was unanimously passed.
