Happy Birthday greetings were extended to Maeola.
The October minutes and treasurer’s reports were given.
Plans for the Christmas Party were finalized. A potluck dinner will be held on December 11 at the church.
Show and Share:
Ann had several table toppers to show the group. She also donated one as a special prize for the Christmas party. Sherrye showed her finished Police Uniform quilt. Glenda showed a do-it-yourself quilt design pattern.
Eunice brought a sack of fabric treasures. Everyone dived right in and all you could see were arms and elbows. “Wow, this is just like Xmas,” one was heard to say.
A motion was made and 2nd to give CWF a $50.00 donation to buy beans for the ICCM Food Bank.
