4.  Angela McCorkle presented the following report.  This was my last year as Quilt Show Chairperson.  Doniene Fulagar said she would co-chair the next show, as did Connie Hart.  The Donation quilt brought in $931, with a profit of $540.  She stated that she had emailed a full report to members.
The Route 66 quilts was not what we expected.  It cost the guild $172 to return the quilts.  In the future, more detailed information needs to be given before we do something like this.
Angela gave a report on comparing the 1st quilt show to this one.
Robin Moody said she would get the Donation quilt for 2016 going.  Shelia Smith & LaTrelle Locks said they would help.

3.  The nominating committee gave their report.  It is as follows:  Joy Ivy will return as President; Millie Schwab will be vice president; Robin Moody will be co-vice president; Vickie Mazurek will be secretary.  They did not have anyone for treasurer; however, Shelia Smith said she would take the position.
4.  Richard Ivy made a suggestion to Joy & she presented it to the guild.  In the future, anyone wanting to get rid of quilt magazines or books; bring them along with 1 fat quarter per book to the show.  We will put them in the bags we give away.  Everyone seemed to be in  agreement to this.
