Lighthouse Lacers

April 2020 Lighthouse Lacers Newsletter

I trust this newsletter finds you all well as we shelter in place due to COVID 19 that has changed what our normal days are like.

At this time, the clubhouse is reserved for an all-day retreat on May 2nd 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  If the shelter in place gets extended by the governor, we will have to cancel and reschedule.  The address is 6325-44th Street, Avalon Parc Condo Clubhouse. Entrance is either off of Green Bay Road between Hansen Pool and Sunset Ridge cemetery or turn at traffic light on 45th Street.  We hope to make the convention favors ( about 1-2 hours to complete) then work on UFO. We will have many knowledgeable members to help us navigate projects.

The March meeting was held from 1-3 p.m. at Ocenco, Inc. 10224-82nd Avenue, Pleasant Prairie, WI.
There were seven members present.  Convention favors ideas were presented. Cathy actually made two different types of holders with emery boards inside. The members present decided this was a great idea. Supplies were ordered and we will make at the retreat.  

A large box of new unopened threads from Barbara’s house will be sent to the convention in Barbara’s name. Sympathy card was signed and will be sent to Tom. We had an opportunity to share books, various craft supplies and memories of Barbara during the rest of the meeting. Rose Ann will contact the lacing group in IL and IOLI to see if they would like books.

Happy Lacing
