JULY MEETING

Lori Jarmin welcomed everyone to our picnic location at Jensen Grove.  It was a little breezy, but the view over the water was great and we had our very own air show with crop dusters flying over us on the way out of the airport!.


Some of our members waiting for lunch!
Mary McCullough, Alice Baumgartner (hiding!), Rita Harris, Peggy Wareing, Elaine McNair, Karen Price

When our chicken arrived (brought by Alice) we all indulged in one of our favorite pastimes (eating, not quilting).  As we were finishing our lunch, Candy High handed out papers with pictures of quilt blocks that we were supposed to identify and fill in the blanks on which blocks we knew!

Lori showed our raffle quilt and Joyce Brower talked about ticket sales and 
sign-ups for selling raffle tickets at the Eastern Idaho State Fair.  
Lori reminded everyone that entries for the 
NeedleArts department are August 28th and 29th.
