A heartfelt wish to each of you for a peaceful and Happy Christmas as we remember the magical story of Bethlehem. For many of us we will celebrate the joy of the season away from those who mean the most to us.
This year has gone on as before with birthdays, marriages, divorces, deaths only we have not been able to comfort one another as a club due to covin. Our Sunshine ladies Judy and Luann have been so good at sending cards reminding you that you are each thought of on your day. I really need to know of your ups or downs drop me a quick email.
As a human being , we all need hope and inspiration to keep our spirits up when times are difficult; we are just made that way. So, I like to add Calico Cut Ups to your basket of things to look forward to as we move optimistically inro 2021. I am anxious to begin Calico
again "with Show and Tell and Sewing. Your Board has had lots of
conversations on how to proceed into the new year. Our big
discussion has been to withdraw from AQG. What do you think? We will send out a ballot for you to vote.
The Big, Big issue is Calico needs a "President" "Chairperson" to be at the helm of the club. We have a new Treasure, Secretary and only need a chair. Please consider this position for Calico Cut Ups to continue. By our bylaws I can not continue as president. If no one steps forward Calico may go into default. As it appears now the first 3 months of 2021 will be in lock down so the new chair will only serve 9 months. Easy peasy!!!! Please Please some one step forward to keep Calico running.
We had a park meeting with 10 ladies attending, A Christmas lunch with 16 ladies attending. Trying to get a date for a CCU Retreat in June 2021. The Spring Tea is on hold but ready to go.
Ruby K will check out the AccuQuilt to any member who wishes to use it for up to two weeks. For further information give Ruby our Program chair a call. Board felt a lot of funds were invested in this equipment so let's all use it.
