A Delightful Evening

Our first meeting of the month of June started out with an ice cream social at which members enjoyed assembling each one's ice cream refreshments.
With our ice cream fantasies satisfied we proceeded on to our business meeting. After minutes of the last meeting were read and other business was discussed, we went on to thank our outgoing guild president Sue for the past year's leadership. Her officers were presented with wonderful thank you gifts of her home sewn purses. Also she presented the other members of the guild with lovely mini purses she had created. Next our officers for the coming year were installed.

Following our business meeting members participated in a show and tell.

Our Spring Picnic

The time for our annual spring picnic rolled around and this year we enjoyed the 'indoors' where it wasn't raining! It was so good for our guild to get together again. We only had one meeting early in the month of May due to Memorial Day falling on the same day that our 2nd meeting would have taken place.

Members shared various dishes and we enjoyed quite a feast.

After our meal it was on to guild business and then show and tell.
