From JoEllen Salkin:
Thanks to our great programs and informative guild business, our meetings so far this year have been running a full two hours. We need to try to be more respectful to the staff at Lake Farmpark and be completely out of the building prior to 9:00. The Executive Committee has met and discussed ways to streamline our meetings and still have time for the camaraderie we all enjoy. Since we have the room available as early as 6:00, beginning with the April meeting, we will precede each meeting at 6:45 with a Show and Tell until 7. A table will be still set up and members are invited to display their creations, and optionally talk about each item. These items will remain on the table throughout the meeting for further review by members; we encourage the use of the Show and Tell form to share more detailed information. We will begin each meeting at 7 with introductions, the program, a short break and an abbreviated business meeting. It is our hope that this schedule will meet the needs of our membership as well as Lake Farmpark, who have been so generous to us.
