Happy Birthday to Us. Happy Birthday to Us. Happy Birthday to Our Quilt Guild. Happy Birthday to Us.
Well, we turned 5 years old this year. The Newtonia Battlefield Quilters are just like any toddler, trying to grow and learn. Grow we did as we had two new members join with us. We wish to welcome Donna and Donna to our guild.
Our President, Rebecca, took care of the new business of replacing Paula as Vice President with Marcene. Then, Bobbie as Treasurer with Miyuki. Vea is our new Project Chairman with Lucy as Vice Chairman. Rebecca announced that she will be the Program Chairman since she didn't have any other volunteers.
The night moved on with the drawing of the name for the winner of the BOM "Kite" blocks. The winner was our new member, Donna. Coralee then shared with her the last block of her year that will be due next month. It is a darling "Koala Bear" that is to be paper pieced.
Suzanne led our group in a game of "Quilting Jeopardy". She had wonderful prizes that went along with the answers. We soon realized that some lacked knowledge in the areas that others were very knowledgeable in.
Birthday Cake and Ice Cream by Marcene and Paula were served and after door prizes were chosen, we adjourned until next month when our new Project and Program Chairmen will be in place and ready to lead off our new year. See you then.
