Photography: Doreen announced that Karen Trasatti will take pictures of individual with their Shamrock runners during Show & Tell and a group picture at the end.
Program: The information for next month's runner will be on the Blog, along with templates. Mary Lou Price demonstrated an easy way to make the flying geese for that runner. The book to sign in your UFO's will be next to the regular sign in book each meeting until the Challenge ends, January 2018.

Doreen announced that the group elected to continue our Thanksgiving Dinners.
"Thank You" notes from the animal shelter for our dog and cat beds, CARA for our quilts and bags, and a note from Geri Pagliaro who has dropped out of our Guild because of the travel distance were read by Doreen.
Doreen also informed us that our September 30th bus trip to Lancaster, will leave Court House at 6:30 or 6:45am. We will visit Burkholders and Goods and then on to Intercourse for Zooks and the Country Store. Lunch and dinner will be on your own, however, coolers will be on the bus if you want to pack meals. We will leave Lancaster at 6:30pm and be home around8:30pm or so. The cost is based on 37 people and will be $39, due in June.
As for Peggy's suggestion for forming a committee to drive those who have trouble driving at night to meetings, Doreen stated she did not feel we needed a committee. Instead, she felt that once the new phone Directory is available, "call someone near you if you need a ride...no one will say no, I'm sure."
A Sew Day has been set up for April 29th at the West Cape May Borough Hall. We will make a $25 donation for the afternoon. We will set up tables on Friday and it is hoped that people will stay afterwards to help clean up. It will be held 10am-4pm and a signup sheet of those planning on attending was passed around. Our plan is to work on charity items. Doreen hopes that someone will bring an iron and ironing board.
Veronica Scutari announced the Ocean City Arts Center has added jewelry and quilts to their 55th Art Show. It is August 4th-6th. Additional information and an application to enter can be found at www.oceancityartscenter.org.
