President's Post - May 2022
It is hard for me to believe, but this will be the last general meeting for the 2021/2022 Guild Year. I have received so much joy and inspiration from our group and I’ve been very proud to serve as your President this past year. We have a wonderful President Elect in Elena Prisekin and I look forward to the upcoming year with her leadership and all the new possibilities to explore!

Activities will not completely stop during the summer. We will have an outdoor meeting with a Weftover sale on July 9th at Goose Lake. The Churanunu study group will continue to meet monthly.

This June, there will be wool waulking at the 3 Barons Faire one day each weekend, and both days at the Scottish Highland Games. Notification of dates and times will be sent out prior to the event.
