Hope you are enjoying this hot weather; I definitely am not enjoying it!! I like 80 better than 100!

The incorporation papers have been filed with the State of California and now we wait for the next step. I’ll keep you posted.

Be sure to come to the August meeting to learn some new techniques demonstrated by our members and do some socializing.

The board has decided to change the website (http://www.gqccc.org/membership/#membersonly) password every year to protect the Guild’s internal information. In the near future, you will receive an email blast with the new password for the coming year. Once you enter this password, you’re good to go. Only has to be entered once. Watch out for this email so you don’t miss out on important information (like board minutes, treasurer’s reports, upcoming quilt shows, etc.). If for some reason you haven’t received it by September 1, check with Kathy Callahan, Jill Orr, or me to get the password.

Also in August there will be a Secret Quilter questionnaire. If you chose to participate, you fill out the form and put it in the basket. At the end of the meeting, take a form out of the basket (make sure it’s not your own form). This person will be your Secret Quilter. Each month from September through December, you will bring a present for your quilter. The present will have the name of your Secret Quilter on it and you will put it in a brown paper bag with no name. During the meeting the presents will be taken out of the bags. At the end of the meeting, you pick up your present. It is all explained in the form. This a fun thing in which to participate.

There have been some changes. Lee Zahn, Workshop Chair, is moving to Boise, Idaho. We’re sorry to see her go and appreciate her work. She found her own replacement, Diane Slattery. Diane will do a great job, also.

Maryann Carroll-Moser has agreed to schedule visiting guilds and their opportunity quilts. Thank you, Maryann.

If you want to help do something, just let us know. Remember we are a volunteer organization. Any questions call me, 672-6845.

See you at the August general meeting, August 21, 2017.

Becky Styles
President 2017-2019
