September: AIDS Quilt, Happy Birthday, Congratulation, MIA, Etc…

We banded together to layout our AIDS Quilt blocks to put it together.


After laying out the blocks and numbering them, some of the girls hit the sewing machine to put the rows together.  Gwen Jackson took it home to finish sewing on the boarders, and I will be making the label.


It was also Linda Saunders Birthday.  Now how old are you?  I know the kids were calling her while at the meeting wishing her well on her birthday.  Happy Birthday Linda.


Shirley Royal was in town giving a helping hand with the AIDS quilt.  Emma what are you doing?  She is on the sewing machine.  After the initial shock of seeing Emma on the sewing machine, I had to check out what she was sewing.  It was a pillow case.  You go girl, we will make a sewing machine user out of you yet.  And who is that with a big smile on her face, Lezetta.  She has been spending time with the family, weddings and road trips.  We have missed you welcome back.


Congratulation to Lynora Williams, she has received her  Master of Science Degree in Library & Information Science.  You go girl.

We also like to give our Congratulation to Jocelyn Herbert  who is now Jocelyn Allen.  Hold on to that man, and stop having him sit in the car while you are in the meeting.
