Minutes from July meeting:
The meeting started off with members looking at all the silent auction items. A sale table was also setup for single payment. It was exciting to see so many members attending the meeting. Debbie and Julie gave instruction in pouring a base. The pouring table was set up outside. The bases produced were amazing. Everyone had two bases to use for future basket projects. Thank you Debbie and Julie for all your help and for furnishing us with the materials. After everyone had poured their bases, we came in for a delicious lunch. Members brought a great assortment of salads, sandwiches, and dessert. After lunch, five minutes were given to close the auction. Winners were announced with some great buys. All proceeds for the auction and sale benefits our convention summer. In remembrance of Sandy, we love you and miss you so much. Your basket supplies benefits for giving the best convention ever.
