Nomination Committee

The Nomination Committee will present a slate of officers at the August meeting. At that time, nominations from the floor will be accepted. These results will then be published and presented at a vote at the next meeting. If anyone would like to be added to the slate, please e-mail, Jan Wilhelm, Chairman ; Gail Holmes , or Bobbi Beckhorn . Everyone is welcome and encouraged to run for an office. Thank you.

Many thanks to Ann Hawkins for hosting the July get together at her home. Although unable to attend – my chatty daughter was visiting for only a few days and I selfishly did not want to dilute that time with her – I understand everyone enjoyed the relaxed setting and purely social day.

You will see later in the newsletter that Cheryl, our Treasurer and resident super-sleuth, has found that NYS now has a different interpretation of raffle rules than in past years. This change can be beneficial to the guild and offers some ease to balancing the budget.

You are all aware that in moving the fiscal year end to December of this year we are trying to ‘stretch’ the budget over a longer period. We are also, given our small size and limited income, considering ways to minimize costs going forward while maximizing the benefits to members. Please take the time to consider this ongoing budget situation and what steps could be taken.

The board welcomes all your suggestions – and our Members at Large, Caren Betlinski and Kate Wylie, faithfully bring all suggestions to the monthly board meetings.


I hope you are enjoying your July. I have reviewed the By-Laws again recently and am working on the Nomination
Committee and Process which I hope to share with you soon. I do want you to read the following:

Lake to Lake Quilt Guild, Inc By – Laws
Article I NAME
This club shall be known as the Lake to Lake Quilt Guild, Inc., a Not for Profit 501 (c ) (4)corporation under the Federal IRS Code.
Reasoning: When we changed the by-laws for this article on June 5, 2013, it had been assumed that we were a 501(c) (3) corporation. We now know that we are listed as the above. This needs to be corrected.

As stated, this Article needs to be corrected since we now know that we are listed by the government as a 501 (c) (4) corporation. This publishing will be the first of the two
required before we vote to amend the By -Laws.
Thanks, Sally A.

QBs is meeting twice in July. The first of them is coming up very soon, Wednesday, the 23rd, which is probably tomorrow by the time you get this. It is going to be basic as I have some beginners to work with, but the dye will be there for those that want to come. Then we will meet on the 30th of July for more dyeing and experimental stuff. The August date is the 27th and September's is the 24th.
