December 2011 Minutes

Pray for Snow

December meeting minutes 2011
The meeting opened with introductions as we had a visitor, Ashley. Thank you for joining us Ashley!
Doris followed with the treasurer’s report. She had received two dues, and money from the raffle. Money was spent on flowers for Nancy Grundy, and the Heifer Project. She also got the un cashed check back that was intended for the space rental at the Living History event. The guild balance is currently $2603.85. There will be expenses due shortly for the guild liability insurance premium, and the deposit for the retreat at Davis Creek Park.
There was no weaving study report at this time.
Library report: Heidi is putting together some “learn to” kits using books from our library along with some of the guild equipment. This gives members the opportunity to try something new using tools WITH the instructions on how to use them!

February, April, October, and December meetings will be held at Bartley Ranch. May is at Doris’ home, June, at Marilynn’s house. July will be at Mim’s house.

Sky Peak Ranch: Sky Peaks in Northwest Reno.  A map is available here:  You can access it from 4th street a little west of Truckee River Nursery or from a road you can enter on McCarran going south turning to the right like you wanted to reach Home Depot. At that stop sign, turn right, keep going for awhile through a light and go another few blocks and Sky Peaks is on the left. The community room is on the back or NW side.
