Mary Lou Nuzum discussed the trips and workshops committee. There will be 3 workshops and one trip. These will be offered at different times. Mary Lou passed out slips with ideas to vote for your choices.
Motto Mabel discussed this year's motto "Everything old is new again" The idea is to pull out UFO's and projects that were put away and bring them in to show the group for ideas and input about finishing. This could provide the encouragement needed to finish projects.
Meet the Members Members were asked to introduce them selves and to tell things about them. This will be completed next month.
