GaLTT NEWS - APRIL 2006
2nd Annual General Meeting
GaLTT’s second AGM was held in the afternoon of February
25th at the Community Hall. Many thanks to the approximately 45 members
who came out as the snow was falling to listen to the report of our first
year, to elect a new Board of Directors and to share some interesting
conversation and great food after the meeting. Marylyn Beaubien assembled
a lovely gift basket door prize which was won by Judy Preston and raised
$130.75 for GaLTT.
Gabriola Quilt On Display
One of the delightful highlights
of the day was the very first viewing of the Gabriola Quilt. Our very
own Gabriola quilters group has once again demonstrated their great creative
skills to produce an amazing and most beautiful quilt and pillow as a
donation to GaLTT for a summer raffle fundraiser. The quilt will be on
display soon at the Library, and tickets will be available from GaLTT
members and at the Farmers Market. Many, many thanks to quilters Leslie
MacDonald, Morag Orr-Stevens, Sue Vohanka, Valerie Walsh, Liz Welsh,
Janet Williams, Sandi Wingrove, and Karen Hatton.
