Roxie’s report on our charity quilt project. She brought batting cut to size for some lap quilts and for

some patriotic quilts, plus more tops and backings. We have some patriotic quilts that are finished and

others need bindings. We discussed what the label should say and decided on the following:

Thank you for your service. Nishna Botna Valley Quilters Guild - 2016

Sharon brought up that Family, Inc. in Avoca is in need of little girl’s clothing items - especially sizes 3

and 4. After some discussion Sharon made a motion to take $50.00 from the treasurer account and

purchase clothing for that age. Betty seconded. Motion carried. Betty and Elaine will shop at

Outfitters in Avoca for the clothing and take it to Family, Inc.
