August 2016 Minutes

Minutes, August 16, 2016
The Brownwood Quilters Guild met for its regular meeting on Tuesday, August 16, 2016, at the First Christian Church in Brownwood. Present were 20 members; two new members, Dianna Mayfield and Deborah Agnew; and two visitors, Laynie Evans and Linda Heitman.
President Lana Webb called the meeting to order. The consent agenda was approved, with a motion to accept by Angela McCorkle and a second by Joy Ivy. Lana recognized August birthdays. She read a thank you note from the Ronald McDonald House in Dallas where we had sent pillowcases. Lana had made the most CPS bags (8) and won a gift certificate to Angela’s shop.

New Business: Proposed changes to the bylaws were reviewed. Mildred Turner made the motion to accept the proposed changes, and Ann Turner seconded. The motion carried.
Lana has made notes with self-addressed envelopes to attach to WeeCare quilts and CPS bags. Hopefully we will get a response or confirmation of receipt from the parents or children.
