President’s Message April 2016
As I mentioned in my November message, National Volunteer Week, a time to promote and appreciate volunteers, is April 10 – 16, 2016. Let me quote and confirm that, “Volunteers are the roots of strong communities. Just like roots are essential for trees to bloom, volunteers are essential for communities to boom.”
You make generous gifts of time and talent, creating charity quilts and pillowcases, participating in the raffle quilt and quilt show; searching for, deserving candidates of our scholarship fund, to name a few things. BVQ, which is each and every one of you, deserves “the hardy handshake and a pat on the back.” Have a well-earned week of appreciation!
I just finished my last two blocks for our block exchange. Can’t wait to have my box returned and see what can be put together, hopefully in time for our quilt show. Many thanks to Nancy Arico, Super Volunteer, for organizing this year long project. Oh, and did you know she is one of our Treasurers, co-chair of the Challenge, planning the Chantilly Bus trip and now beginning the Round Robin. Nancy will also be taking care of the registrations of the quilts for the quilt show and overseeing the Café. Thank you Nancy!
Thanks go out to Anne Marie Kiesling, Deb Kelly, Lillian Krieder (and her daughter), Ardelle Clarke, Judy Noden and Mary Dulik for putting on a wonderful BVQ Anniversary party last month.
Hope you can make the Board meeting Thursday, April 7, 2016 6:45 PM Widener Law Library.
See you April 12 TH,
