On Tuesday, October 19 there will be an open house at the Fine Arts Center from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm.. There will be a quilt artist who uses textures for colors so the blind can enjoy art.
Jilly McCloy wrote a letter to the Senior Center. She found out that it is now under the housing authority and not the city of Colorado Springs. The center is open to negotiations about the price of using the space, so we may be able to continue using it for the same cost.
Mary Hattick reported that the First United Methodist Church downtown is willing to rent us space. It will cost $25 per meeting and the church staff will include set up and take down of chairs and tables. She will include more information in the newsletter and on the web site.
If you are not going to be at the November meeting when we hold the vote about where we will meet next year, you can vote by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or send a letter via regular mail to Barb Czarnieki indicating your vote.
Jilly had a message from Nikki, who is in charge of the Christmas Party. She is suggesting a Hawaiian theme with platters from Chik-fil-a and food donations from members. She also has ideas for games, with each member bringing 2 fat quarters (batiks) to use as prizes. Each member will be asked to bring 2 fat quarters, a side dish, and an item to be donated to charity. She will give more information at the November meeting about the charity aspect.
Wendy Riggs is heading the nominating committee. Some people have already volunteered for positions in the guild. Gloria Lesher is the most recent volunteer, she will take over the secretary's position. Other available spots will be posted in the newsletter and on the web site.
