Annual Picnic, 6:00PM
LDS Pavillion -- Hollow Way, Nevada City
What a generous group of ladies you are! At the June meeting, I asked for white glove sign ups for the Nevada County Fair in August and I have all slots ﬁlled but 4.
These are slots for you night owls out there. I need 2 people for the 6pm - 10pm slot on Friday August 8, and 2 for the 6pm - 10pm slot on Saturday, August 9. I just need 4 people to donate 4 hours of their time. You get free admission and free parking, and you can come early with your friends/family to enjoy the food and activities before your shift begins at 6.
This is the ﬁrst time we will be selling tickets for our 2015 opportunity quilt, "Fiori". I think this quilt is a stunner (a totally unbiased opinion)! Remember monies from the opportunity quilt and quilt show baskets are our biggest money makers for the guild and for 4 hours of your time, you will be helping to send a well-deserving high school student on to college with our scholarships.
If you (and a friend) are willing to take one or more of these shifts, please let me know at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 272-7863.
Our July meeting is our annual picnic. It will be at at the lovely pavilion in the back of the Latter Day Saints church on Hollow Way. The date is July 8th at 6:00 PM. Please come and enjoy friendships, meet new people and have good food.
We are almost half way through 2014! Time is really going too quickly for me! Plans are well on the way for 2015 in PTQG. The nominating committee for 2015 oﬃcers is in place, a preliminary budget committee has met and programs are already being planned. The reason the board added a preliminary budget meeting was to be better able to plan for our 2015 year, particularly how much we can spend for speakers and if we can aﬀord to have a Jamboree, and if so, make those plans. Karle deProsse, our Finance, Budget and Audit chairperson, has explained to the board that we are continuing to spend $2,000 to $4,000 per year over our expenses. Our nice reserve savings is shrinking and within just a few years could be depleted. It is important to have the reserve in the event we cannot have a quilt show or some disaster aﬀects the area one year, as we count on the income to fund scholarships, community service and all the wonderful activities that we oﬀer our members for a low to no cost. If anyone has comments or suggestions regarding budgeting and $nances of the guild, please contact either Karle or me, we welcome hearing from our members.
See you at the picnic with a yummy dish to share!
