First Meeting of the Year

Last night's meeting was a blast! It was great to see so many of our members could make it and even to see new faces. I look forward to a great year with all of you.

We have some new officers. Thanks to Marie & Julie for volunteering this year.

UBS will have a bazaar at our meeting place December 2nd. If you have items you'd like to sell, don't miss this event from 4pm-9pm. We could use volunteers to help decorate.

Many people decided that the bracelet collaboration was a great project to get started on. One member makes a plain bracelet blank and puts it in a grab bag for another member to draw from and take home to embellish. The original creator receives their bracelet back the next month and everyone gets to share their stories about the process of creation. Swap will take place at the October 21st meeting.

If any one is interested in participating in the "Bottles for Hope" project discussed, collect some small bottles (mini liquor bottles would work perfect) to share or work on. The more we have, the more hope we can spread. This project involves members covering and decorating tiny bottles and making them available at local cancer treatment centers. A contact will be made by Lynette Schroeder-Einwiller so that the bottles will have a distribution source. Techniques in covering bottles can vary. Include a card or slip of paper with the artist's name and a inspirational message of hope.

See you at the next meeting, October 21st.
