Highlights from the Past Executive Council Meetings….

The Executive have been Zoom meeting each month. We have been working on preparations for the upcoming Zoom Annual Meeting on May 14th. The Executive debated about having an in person Annual but with the uncertainty of Covid we decided it would be safer to wait another year before taking that step.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday Morning, May 14th.

Next year we will be looking for some new volunteers to fill some of the Executive positions so if you are interested in being on the Executive let us know.

Highlights from the Past Executive Council Meetings….

The Executive was busy finalizing the 70th – 71st Annual that was being held on Zoom on May 8th. This Zoom Annual went very well and we were able to stay within the planed time of two hours. We would like to thank Stanley Major from Sea Leather Wear for his demonstration on the use of Fish Skin Leather and the various ideas that Fish Skin Leather can be used for. Visit him on the internet at Sea Leather Wear.

Please see the last page of the Newsletter for links to pictures of the items that were judge for this Annual.

We held an Executive meeting the end of May to wrap up any outstanding business before we broke for June, July and August. Our next Executive meeting will be held in September.
