President's Message
Doreen Snyder

Are you still playing catch up from the busy holiday season? I hope by the time you read this I will be back on a reasonable schedule. I needed all of January to catch up.

Please join me in welcoming new member Barbara Pauer. I hope you are able to take advantage of the stitching opportunities and friendships available in our chapter. During my first few months in IRC, I attended as many activities as I could fit into my schedule in order to find what suited me the best. Perhaps you could do the same.

The first Saturday in February (this year February 3) is traditionally a nationwide EGA stitch- in-public day. As discussed at our January General Meeting, Starbucks and Panera Bread are welcoming to those who would like to sit and stitch. Be sure to get a photo while you are out there.

Many thanks to Stephanie Murphy and Marty Wyatt and all their helpers who set up our Silent Auction at the January meeting. Thanks to membersí generosity, we raised $435.75. Our budget goal was $400.00. Well done!

Several members have been working hard over the last two months to get our newest outreach project, Teaching Adults, off to a good start. We will be teaching at three local libraries starting February 1. (See details inside.)

Did you notice all the new names on our Executive Board list of officers? I am so pleased with their willingness to step up and help our chapter in its continued success. However, we now have several opportunities in other areas. After many, many years as our Education chair, Annette Clark is stepping down this month. I am hoping to have filled this important position by the time you read this newsletter. Other open opportunities are: Historian, Hospitality (Socials), and Publicity. Please contact me personally if you are able to volunteer; otherwise, we may have no other choice but to discontinue these functions. That is not something I am looking forward to.

Meanwhile, I hope you have a few favorite stitching projects lined up for 2018..

Happy Stitching,

Hospitality Notes
