       May 14th -- Virtual Meeting -- A Guild First !!
                      Online chat, remote chat, video chat, video conferencing, virtual ...        

We are still unable to meet in person but we're doing our best to keep the guild entertained and engaged.  We will be sending out the website address and log in credentials on May 13th so you can dial in on the 14th at our normal meeting time of 7pm.  No driving, no dressing up, just relax and watch the meeting on your computer, tablet or mobile phone.

Our May meeting will be a bit different than what we're used to but be sure to join us to see and hear Deborah Richmond, from the Quilted Turtle website, as she shows us her latest array of favorite quilting tools.  You'll be able to order must-have items from her website,


Although this guild year has been turned upside-down by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have continued to plan ahead for 2020-2021 and we will have fantastic programs, thanks to Donna Tarnas and Nancy McIntyre.

Just like the jigsaw puzzles many of us have been working on lately, the guild will only be complete if we have all of the pieces in place. We have several critical positions still waiting for members to step up and claim. Don't think because you are a newer member that it's too soon for you to participate on the Board or become a Committee Chair and if you don't want to do it alone, invite a friend to join you!

We are still looking to fill the following Board positions:
• 2nd Vice President -- responsible for setting up the 2021-2022 programs, and executing them as 1st Vice President
• Treasurer -- responsible for handling the guild's revenue, expenses, and banking • Membership -- responsible for accepting annual dues, keeping track of members, and producing the annual roster
• Newsletter -- responsible for producing the monthly newsletter, receiving articles from members
• Fundraising -- responsible for overseeing activities to generate revenue for the guild

Each and every current member of the Board is more than happy to explain their duties. This is fun, not a chore, and you will be contributing to the smooth running of GLHQ, keeping us moving forward as the premier guild in the area. Reach out to any of us to get more information on the openings. Please consider volunteering this year, especially during these challenging times.

                                 HAVEN requests from Carol Brooks:

I hope everyone is staying safe. You are in my prayers. Since we cannot physically donate to Haven I thought it would be nice if we could do something online. Haven has three ways to donate. Go to the Haven website, On the right you will see donate, click on it. There are three ways to donate.
1. Donate online, which means money.
2. Donate other ways, Amazon and Bed, Bath and Beyond are at the very bottom of the page, in blue for you to click on.
3. Donate items, which is what we usually do, and cannot do now
