The following is an important message from Guild President Dawn Jewell about an upcoming guild meeting:
I have scheduled the city library meeting room for Tuesday, August 30th, from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m., for a general membership meeting, in order to discuss the fee’s associated with using the Home Ec. Room for our open sews and retreats. There is a school board meeting on September 14th, in which the concerns regarding the Facility Use Fees is on the agenda and open for discussion. My hopes are that we will have a letter drawn up, with signatures by the guild members, to submit for the board packets with our concerns about the hardship these fee’s would put on us a non-profit organization, along with a list of all the contributions our guild makes to the community. I am also requesting support from any of our members that can make the board meeting as I think this may help influence the decision of the School Board.
I am looking into the fee’s charged by the Little Chapel as an alternative to using the Home Ec. Room and would also like to discuss how we plan to finance our open sews and retreats in the future. These are important topics and greatly influence the future of the guild so please come and make yourselves heard! Any input is needed and appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Northwind Quilters Guild
