PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE March 2019
By Deb Kelly
Happy Anniversary to BVQ! Thanks to our founding members for the start of a 32 year (and counting) journey of “cutting with hope, stitching with grace, quilting with dreams, binding with laughter, and sharing with love”. Who knew? I guess they did – a big shout out to Nancy DiBerardinis, Anne Marie Kiesling, Lil Koster, Gail Kozicki, and Sonia Schaeffer. Thanks for the vision!
By the time we meet for our March meeting, Spring will be 8 days away. Although the long, cold, dark days of late have aided my endeavors in finishing some projects, I couldn’t be happier! With the advent of Spring (even if it is only a date on the calendar), I always feel like a bear emerging from a cave with lots of new things on the horizon! Kathy and Cindy will be unveiling our Challenge Quilt Project, which will be a big hit! We have great guest speakers scheduled for the next 5 months. Our new BVQ year is only 4 months away when we start our 2019-2020 activities (our membership year goes from July 1 through June 30). Board Member Positions will be voted upon soon (there will be some openings, so please consider stepping up to help lead the group!), and open Committee Chairperson positions will have to be filled. Veteran members who have never held a position, and new members, all have fresh ideas which will lead us forward. Don’t be shy!
Here’s to warm weather and time for new projects as the days get longer…..
