MLQG Lite?

It's time to switch back to evening meeting times which makes many of us happy, but others not so much. In the interest of reaching as many members as possible and keeping us all connected, a proposal has been made to try an extra daytime meeting on the 4th Monday at 1:00 April through October. 

These MLQG Lite meetings would consist of guild announcements, show and tell, and a social time only.  All official guild business, programs and speakers would continue, as always, on the 3rd Mondays or regularly scheduled meeting times.

This topic will be discussed in more detail and voted on at the April meeting.  If you are unable to attend the meeting, but are interested in continuing daytime meetings in this fashion and would like your vote counted, please contact Peggi Y. or Susan Mc.

*If found popular, Lite meetings could be continued in the evening November-March to accommodate those who cannot attend daytime meetings.

Ending Period Poverty

An update from Tricia Walker...

We held a successful class in a remote part of Ghana called Boateh to make sanitary kits. These women and girls will now be able to continue to make kits and more importantly teach others to do the same!

Thanks to everyone who supports Tricia in her efforts to end period poverty.  Learn how you can help by clicking the link below. 👇
