|PROGRAM & BRUNCH
Meeting will be one hour earlier than usual, starting at 10:00 with
a hearty brunch guaranteed to include a BIG bowl of Fresh
Strawberries from the orchard where Ellie works.
Lunch Fee: $5.00 per person.
OLAQ Money will be accepted for the brunch,
or you can pay by cash or personal check.
Following brunch, Mantua quilt artist Carole Pollard will present
a program and trunk show of art quilts and lead a discussion of
whether there is any way for a quilt artist to work with a longarmer.
Show and tell and business meeting will be after the program.
If any OLAQ members are interested in attending the
dedication of an Ohio Historical Marker for the Mantua Center
Green, it starts at 1:00 and should be fun. A highlight will be a visit
by President James A. Garfield and his wife Lucretia,
represented by actors in period dress and arriving by horse
drawn carriage. Our hostesses and the speaker will all be going
to the dedication and invite all of us to join them.
We have the Civic Center meeting room most of the afternoon
so those who are not going to the dedication can stay
and have some social time - or work on projects.
The hostesses will return to clean up.
|This is an OPEN MEETING.
Guests are allowed and there will be no additional cost to them.
They will pay the same price for lunch and nothing for the program.
