And the Beat Goes On
I am pleased to announce that Rebecca Martin has agreed to be PHG President for the 2013-2014 year and that Kate Dobbins has offered to be president-elect. Rebecca is an active weaver with a broad textile background, so we can look forward to lots of new ideas and new directions. Both Rebecca and Kate are longtime members of the Guild and will step into the President’s shoes without missing a beat. Please join me in thanking them for taking on these responsibilities.
They, Mary Cooper as Treasurer, and Robin Frasier as Secretary, will be formally elected at the June 13 Guild meeting. At that meeting we will also be approving next year’s budget, enjoying strawberry shortcake, having a silent auction, and giving door prizes. It is always a very fun, relaxed meeting, and I urge you to come. Or, you can come to the Day Meeting, enjoy strawberry shortcake, cross your fingers to win a door prize, and help plan the Day Meetings for next year.
This is my last President’s Message, and it is bittersweet to write. I have gained enormously from being President for the last two years, and thank all of you for your friendship, enthusiasm and hard work. We have accomplished a lot and have had a lot of fun, and I know Rebecca will continue fostering the energy we have created.
I wish you a restful summer, filled with good weather and lots of weaving and spinning. See you in September!
