Officer Term Draws to a Close

Our Quilt Club’s outgoing board members gathered for a last meeting and luncheon this week.  I confess I am ready to hand over the responsibilities to my successor, though it has been a very good experience to serve as an officer the last two years.  

It has been a special joy to serve with our outgoing president.  She took the job on very short notice when our president-elect was unexpectedly forced to relocate.  She served with humor, grace and courage, all the qualities you would hope to have in a presiding officer.  

Each of the outgoing board members was given a small quilt.  No two were alike.  This is the one I received.  She made it using the pattern from the Karen Stone workshop we had earlier this year.  I will treasure it.

I love the pattern and the colors in the quilt you received.

I just joined a guild a few months ago but appreciate those who do serve. I didn't feel ready for that yet, being a newbie! Pretty quilt!

Like AnnieO, I just joined a quilt a little earlier in the year (and haven't been to a meeting in months because of family commitments and travel). But I think I'd like to get more involved by serving ... maybe not as an officer yet, but perhaps on a committee. I appreciate all you who serve our guilds.
