President’s Message

Lyn Kennison

I would like to congratulate and welcome Terry Thomas as our new President, Rachel Dollar as Vice President, Haley Wigent as Secretary and, Linda Roman and Kate Nichols as Co-Treasurers. They will bring new ideas and energy to the Board and the Guild. I will still be part of the Board as Past President and here to help wherever I can. I have grown personally over the past two years serving as President in confidence, patience and tact. Friendships were developed that will continue.

It was difficult for all of us with Covid and trying to develop the new website. All of that is behind us now with the website up and running and it is so much better than before. I truly appreciate all the hard work that was done by so many people to get us to where we are today. We managed to have a virtual Gathering of the Guilds, endless meetings and many play dates where we got to know each other better and learn new skills … all virtually! We all worked together through very difficult times and the ever present computer challenges to keep the Guild going and expanding. Thank you all!

The Holiday Party is scheduled for December 12th 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm. The Zoom link will be posted on the event on the website and you just need to log in to access it. It is a time we can talk about what went well and what we want to change going forward. We will do a voluntary White Elephant Gift Exchange game which can be so much fun. If you are choosing to participate just have a gift to give away that is affordable to mail if necessary. We will also raise a glass of your choice of beverage to toast the New Year and all the possibilities it holds.

Thank you for your support over the past two years as your President and I hope to meet more of you in the months ahead. Sending happy glass outcomes to each and everyone of you.

Wishing you Happy and safe Holidays, Lyn
