Thanks to everyone who was able to make it out to the meeting on Sunday and also to those who filled out the survey. The information was very helpful and led to a great discussion at the meeting.
Charlene and Donna have volunteered to step up as co-chairs for the guild! They are busy getting orientated and making plans for a great 2019. They will be talking to members who may be interested in being on guild committees. If you are interested in getting involved please do not hesitate to talk to them.
