MEMBERSHIP - Margie Read, Kathy Henderson

***Membership Alert***
 
Please bring your $25.00 annual dues check or cash with you to our June 5 luncheon/meeting so you will be able to transition smoothly into next year.  If you bring cash, correct change is always preferable since we do not keep a lot of money at the Membership table.  
 
Wow!  What a record-buster attendance we had for Bonnie Hunter’s presentation!   80 Guild Members remembered to sign in, plus 15 guests from all over Georgia, and Bonnie Hunter herself, were present for a total of 96 people in recorded attendance.  And wasn’t it fun!
 
As our Membership term draws to a close, we want everyone to know how much we have appreciated getting to know you a little better and for all your help, patience, and encouragement.   It has been our privilege and pleasure to serve in the area of Membership for the past two years.  Please welcome the new Membership Team for the 2018-2019 guild year:  Margie Read and Kathy Henderson.  
 
Hope to see everyone at the June 5 luncheon (with your $25).

SPECIAL MESSAGE - Kay Dejno

Members should go to the LOQG Website to access important documents just added today. These documents were too lengthy to include in this Newsletter, therefore, they have been published on the Website in the Members Only section. Topics are: Stefan Thomas Arts-in-Bloom Workshop, and 2018/2019 Board of Directors Survey.   These documents will also be published on our LOQG FB page. Please note that the Survey may take a few seconds to open before download.
