President’s Message March 2016
Every March 17th, I got to say my name was Kathleen Mary O’Sturgulewski. At least that’s what the nuns in my Irish Catholic grammar school would tell me.
At a young age, I learned “All are Welcome.” And welcome you are to BVQ anytime you can make it. Unfortunately, Feb 9, 2016 was not the day and sorrowfully our meeting had to be canceled for everyone’s safety. Hospitality and Programs, our raffles and BOM worked so hard and it was appreciated. The good news is that Deb Finan will replace speaker Mark Lipinski in April. Prayers to Mark for his health issues and hopefully we will get back on his schedule very soon. And hopefully, the “chocolate fountains” did not go to waste.
Shamrocks, leprechauns, the Easter bunny, crocuses and daffodils are in our not too distant future. But first we have BVQ’s birthday to celebrate. We’ll be 29 years young this month. And so will Derek Hough, Bruno Mars, Kaley Cuoco and Keira Knightly. Don’t worry I hardly know who they are too!
What’s a party without party favors? Once again Anne Marie Kiesling has volunteered to make sure we don’t go home empty handed. And Lillian Kreider’s daughter will make sure we celebrate in style with one of her beautiful cakes! Don’t miss it! Thanks Deb and Lillian for co-ordinating.
National Quilting Day is Saturday, March 19, 2016. Let’s try “being together” by communicating what we are doing that day (hopefully sewing) on the BVQ Facebook page. It should be fun! BTW, please remember that Christine Rushton administers our Facebook page and should be contacted with important information.
Speaking of the Facebook page. If you haven’t seen our raffle quilt take a look! It’s breathtaking!
I’d like to say the snow is over, but our second son was born on May 2nd and it snowed May 9th! Maybe if we all think Spring we will see each other on March 8th.
