Natalie brought the meeting to order at 10:10 and asked for a moment of silence. Our new member, Linda, introduced herself. Several members had birthdays in May and received a birthday FQ lollipop and a rousing rendition of "Happy Birthday."
Cindy talked about our next charity quilt effort which will be our annual charity quilt for Fisher House. The theme is wonky houses. Use beachy colors and the colors of sky, grass, and sand. Think of the houses you see when you walk along the beach. The quilt is due in July, so please bring your blocks to the June meeting.
Today is our mini Shop Hop and Sew-in. Dawn from A Quilter's Place has ordered some jelly rolls for our Jelly Roll Race in June and has purchased a sandwich tray for our visit. She is also offering guild members a 20% discount on your purchases today.

Our 4th quarter project will be a quilt for the QuiltCon charity challenge.
Participating in these charity efforts is always strictly voluntary.
