More June Announcements

We have a few more items to add to the June announcements we sent out a couple of weeks ago.

First, I want to thank everyone who participated in all aspects of the 45th Anniversary celebration!!!  We are part of a wonderful organization and the evening was very special.  Congratulations to the Distinguished Members, who are featured in the Plain Print.  Thank you to Millie Fauquet for sharing her beautiful quilts – they were awesome.  I received many thank you notes and positive comments about the celebration!  They are much appreciated.

Looking forward to seeing you at the June meeting!
Pat Kant, LQG President
