December 2021 Meeting/Christmas Party

 Wow! Our combined meeting and Christmas party was a fantastic way to end the year for our Guild. We enjoyed great conversation, delicious food, amazing quilts, and a thoughtful induction ceremony for next year's officers. It was just a lovely afternoon.

First - greeting each other and catching up-

Those who volunteered to decorate tables created a festive and welcoming atmosphere-

Next we enjoyed yummy food and drink -

 Then we moved on to Show and Tell. There were not a lot of items, but the ones that were shown were all beautiful!

Then it was time for the installation of the officers for 2022. Sylvia read descriptions of each position that she had written based on the bylaws. She likened each position to a block in a quilt. We all were touched by her words and the gravity of the posts we had agreed to fill.

Officers for 2022

 The grand finale was our table full of Bumble Bags. We can all be proud of the caring hearts of our Guild members. 

A table FULL of Bumble Bags!!!!

Here we are being nice, knowing that Santa is coming soon.

Thank You!

Several bags of Stone Soup Quilts were recently delivered to the James P. Wilmot Cancer Institute in Rochester and as you can see by the thank you note, they were very much appreciated!

As the year and my term as Outreach Chairperson comes to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every member who has contributed their time, materials, and talent to make the MLQG Outreach Program so successful.  Keep up the great work, ladies!
