December Minutes


DECEMBER 5, 2009

Twenty members attended the PTQ Annual Christmas Party, hosted by Watana Cantrell. A joyous and hilarious time was had by all. We had a short business meeting finish out the year. Everyone brought a “Christmas Block” and they decorated the walls of Watana’s kitchen/dining room. Brenda Crownover was the lucky winner of the blocks! Then a surprise guest arrived: a very jolly Santa appeared at the door. He knew all about Possum Town Quilters! As he passed around gifts to the members, he kept everyone in “stitches”. Watana was a very generous hostess and provided several door prizes – even a stuffed possum! It was time then to partake of all the wonderful food each member brought. After lunch, we played “Dirty Santa”. The fellowship continued until 2:00 pm.

Julia Graber, the 2010 vice-president, explained the changes for lotto blocks next year. Starting in January the monthly block winners will be determined for the next month’s block winners. This will allow the individual’s to choose their color/pattern preferences.
Everyone who attends will be a winner next year. Since we have around 24 members who routinely attend meetings, we will do two per month. January’s block winners will be Sue Seymer and Judy Stokes. Julia will let everyone know what colors/block pattern to make.

Merry Christmas to All.
