The June 12th meeting was attended by seven members.
Our President, Rose Ann, opened the meeting and the
following items were discussed:
Masks - Ocenco has a policy that currently states that
persons who are not fully vaccinated should wear a mask
on premises, otherwise a mask is not required. We will
follow these guidelines. Most members chose to continue
to wear their masks during the meeting.
Roster was sent from a Mac and the spreadsheet was not
able to be opened by everyone. Several members have
moved and these changes were made to the master. I will
take a screen shot of revisions and send these out. In
November, board will evaluate how to manage roster -
should it reflect dues paying members only or anyone who
has expressed an interest in following our Lace group.
Dues were not collected last year.
The 2020 Hospice Alliance raffle that included our tree
raised $800. The winner had had a family member in
hospice at the time, had not planned on putting up a
tree, and was honored to win the tree and display it
Starch used for ornaments - anything that is corn or
sugar based could attach bugs. Artistic spray or stuffy
have been used by some. Discussion will continue next
month as to what members have used in past - should we
all use the same product?
Two demonstrations were presented.
Sylvia brought her pillow and with her block inserts,
she was able todemonstrate
three different tallies.
Handouts were provided and she is completing a tube
video that can be found on her daughter’s account: Robin J Carlson- How to work bobbin lace
