PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE MAY 2018
By Gretchen Gobris
Happy May!! Surely THIS month will bring us warmer weather! May will also bring us plenty to do at BVQ as we ramp up preparations for our quilt show, sell lots of raffle tickets for our super awesome raffle quilt, work on our 2018 Challenge quilts, and work on filling up the bus to Chantilly quilt show on June 2 (bring a friend). We must also take time to thank Ardelle Clark and Judy Noden for organizing our great New Member celebration Luncheon on April 8. What a lovely event complete with beautiful wreaths made by Ardelle and the cutest teacup pin cushions adorned with sewing charms made by Peggy Kushman for each new member.
During our May meeting, we will begin the transition process of our Executive Board by voting on the slate of officers for next year that was presented by our Nominating Committee at the April meeting. Many thanks to our Nominating Committee Kathy Silvon, Bobbie Spaid, and Cindy Faulkner as well as to the members willing to serve on the board. Elected officers will be installed at the June monthly meeting and will serve from July 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019.
There will be a transition meeting for current and newly installed officers and committee chairs on the evening of June 19, 2018. The meeting will begin at 6:30 PM at the Bethel Township Building, 1092 Bethel Rd, Garnet Valley, PA. This is an important meeting for all incoming and outgoing officers and committee chairs to ensure a smooth transition. Each committee chair is requested to provide a written report for their role by the June 19th meeting. Report forms will be distributed to each chair via email or mail. Thanks to all for keeping BVQ running so well!
In the meantime, happy quilting!
