Minutes of the March 2015 Meeting
Roz Macken called the meeting to order.
Old Business: The February 2015 Minutes were approved. Barb Lodge gave the Treasurer's report. A hospitality sheet was passed for members to sign up to bring cookies to upcoming meetings. We discussed our upcoming anniversary event and were reminded that it will be our July meeting; there will be no regular guild meeting on Saturday, July 4. Plans for our participation in the Home and Garden Show in Erie on March 19-22 were also discussed, and a volunteer schedule was drawn up.
Business: : Roz updated us that we have received the replacement plaque for our
new loom. To date, we have not received information about Second Saturday at the
Market House. The Highland Games are believed to be from September 10-13 this
year, with our guild meeting projected to be there on September 12. There will be no
regular meeting on the first Saturday in September (Labor Day weekend). Jenn Phillips
updated us that the Drake's Well Museum is requesting that we demonstrate there,
however dates and details are not yet available. Jenn also updated us that Bits-nPieces
