Treasurers Report: unavailable. June pot luck proceeds to be announced.
Old Business: Several members enjoyed the June pot luck held at Anne’s house. Thank you to Anne for hosting this meeting.
New Business: Elspeth and Anne represented the guild at the VIU 1 Expo. Elspeth has updated the welcome sheet.
“bring a friend” to a meeting was discussed. No further action at this time
A change to afternoon meetings was discussed. As there are still members who work during the day, no changes will be made. A workable solution might be a drivers list of those members who are willing to offer rides to members who do not like driving at night.
