Notes from the June & July meetings ...
The June meeting of the HHRHG was held at the library in Washington and 14 members were present. Teresa Kinman, Treasurer, gave a report on the 11th annual Wool Fiber Arts Fair held in May. Following her reports there was discussion about holding the Fair again in 2015. Since there were only 14 members at the meeting, it was decided that an email-phone vote would be conducted about member's desires for having a Fair next year. Teresa will send the email and make the phone calls. [Note: The final vote was 4 in favor of having the fair next year, 10 against, and one abstention. Therefore the HHRHG will not hold the Wool Fiber Arts Fair in 2015.]
With no further business to discuss, the business meeting was adjourned and a social gathering followed.
In July, 10 members met at the library in Washington. With no officers present there was no business meeting.
Member Marsha Mulroony said, "We decided that since there were no officers, we really could not do any business. So all we did was eat cookies, hook, laugh, show what we were working on, and chat about a gazillion different things. We got kicked out of the library ... they had to tell us twice they were closing! It was relaxed and fun!"
It certainly sounds like an ideal, no-pressure meeting and that those not present missed a wonderful Saturday in Washington.
The August meeting of the Hoosier Hills Rug Hooking Guild will be held at the public library in Washington, Indiana Saturday, August 9 at 10:30 a.m. local time. Visitors are always welcome. Come and hook with us!
