Presidents Message November 2017

For two years now I have been able to call myself President of the Wandering Foot Quilt Guild. It does not sound as fancy as President of the United States but I think it sounds like a lot more fun. And it has been a lot more fun, so I thought I would talk a little bit about what has been accomplished in that time. First of all, we have had two yard sales that were very successful. I had nothing to do with those. We have also had a boutique. That was really successful and mostly due to Manny and his wonderful team of helpers. Again, I had nothing to do with that.  We have had some fun and inspirational speakers. Yep, not me!  One of those speakers is leading to a new opportunity for next year, a Round Robin Program. I’ll help with this and, certainly, participate, but I didn’t do anything on this either. There have been three retreats and one coming up soon. I didn’t organize those. Challenges, yes, there were two!  I participated but didn’t have much to do with them. We had three quilt shows at the Santa Anita Mall.. not me.  We will have two holiday parties and a couple of pot lucks. You guessed it, not me. Well, I did bring stuff and I did eat but that isn’t anything unusual. I didn’t have much of anything to do with charity quilts or dog beds. That was everyone else and Neola.
So, what did I do?  Well, I encouraged Linda to make a bunch of changes to the bylaws. That drove her nuts. I started Carol S on a project to get our 501c3 but my part has stalled the whole thing. Grrrr. Other than that, I mostly hung around and watched everyone else work. I sat at a table and talked to wonderful members I hadn’t really met before. I got a front row seat to the talent and caring shown by our guild. I laughed, I gabbed and,generally, enjoyed myself..  Best Job Ever!!!
I cannot say enough about every officer, chairperson and other folk I have interacted with. Thank you, thank you all for making this so much fun.
See you at the meeting.
