The weather might have keep some from joining us, but those present enjoyed this day of friendship and want to pass along greetings for a wonderful Holiday and a Happy New Year!

Our annual December Holiday meeting meant homemade soups and desserts enjoyed by all. We have some very talented cooks within our group.

But before we ate, we had a business meeting about the program ideas for Spring 2018 (which you’ll see outlined below) and played Wool BINGO. A big thank you for the members from the York area that pulled all the prize bags together. The total surprise of the bags added another fun element this year. Whether rolls of wool or also surprise pin, we all appreciated our prizes. Yes, we got to play through twice.

Ok, now for the Business News:

Let’s start with the need for members to step up and take a leadership role. Please consider volunteering!!!! Participation by everyone makes a fun and exciting group!!! Cheri will be asking for a nominating committee to choose officers for the 2018-2020 years. We are also going to need a coordinator for the Cumberland County Fair if we are going to continue our participation.

    • The Tin Pedlars do not handle the Elliot Hook-in, but knowing many members attend we wanted to post the date.
      Our meeting info and direction can be found under “Meeting Information” in the top menu.
