No September meeting scheduled.

August 13th meeting was held at the Activity Room B Southside Library, Kenosha. nine members were present.  We had sharing of projects from shawls, scarves, Christmas stocking to Sylvia's 50 plus ornaments for the Hospice Tree.  Members who went to convention shared their experiences from the IOLI Convention.  Good workshops and side tours.  We received a CD and thumbdrive with all patterns. The person who won our basket sent a thank you note.  Next year, the 64th convention will be held the week of July 17th at the Valley Forge Casino, Radisson hotel, 1160 First Avenue, King of Prussia, PA.
