The August meeting ...

The HHRHG met for their regular meeting August 8 in the library in Washington, Indiana.  About 11:00 a.m. a business meeting was called to order with 8 members being in attendance.  Judy Foster, Secretary presided as the following items of business were discussed:

Raffle Rug:  The rug was at the meeting and it was decided to raffle it at the October meeting.  Members were urged to sell tickets as this is our only fund-raiser at present.

The 2015 Raffle Rug -- 6 chances to win $5, or $1 for one chance.  Contact a Guild member!
September Meeting:  It was decided that there will be no September meeting because of schedule conflicts with several members, especially the Woolkeepers Hook-in in Danville.  We will meet next in October.

School Art Department Grant:  After discussion it was decided that we will once again present a $250 grant to a local school for use in their art department.  Members are urged to submit the name of their local school to one of the officers or just make that school's name known at the October meeting.  We will draw the name of the lucky recipient at that time.

Bylaws Addition:  We discussed a needed addition to the bylaws and that will be discussed more in the future.

Mission and Purpose of the Guild:  Once again there was discussion of a mission or purpose for the Guild and everyone had ideas.  We need a larger quorum to make a decision on the direction of our guild and all members are urged to attend the next regular meeting and bring their ideas with them.

Jan Cabel once again brought some delicious scones and following the business meeting members stayed to hook, relax, visit, share and enjoy Jan's baking.  Four members were headed to New Harmony for Sug McClain's special 90th Birthday Celebration.  Happy Birthday Sug!

Anne has about a quarter of her geometric rug done.  I asked her to lay the other woolens in the appropriate places to give you an idea of what it will look like.  This is her first hooked piece!

Judy was just beginning the background on her lion rug.

Sharon completed the star on her pumpkin mat at the meeting and later began hooking the tendrils and the pumpkin itself.
