Getting the Word Out!

Guild members converge at meetings  and pass along news. Unfortunately, the news on our members is not always timely. The position of Corresponding Secretary can change that, with your help. Please leave a comment if you know of any member who is recovering from illness, has had a bereavement or may just need an uplifting message! I will send out cards on behalf of our guild. It’s great to let people know that we, as a group, support all of our members. This is above and beyond our art endeavors! You can leave a comment on this blog or email Nancy Thyfault at nancypi5@yahoo.com.
