Our meeting was a first when it came to members showing up. We had 13 members how up. We also had a potential new member. We all had a great time.


We all laughed and had a great time. We all stayed longer than usual with the last person leaving around 3 pm.


We all talked about the next block for the next quarter that will be due for December's Christmas Party. That party will be at Deanna's house again. We all are looking forward to it again.


Sharon finished her block for Deanna B. Deanna had all the blocks out that she had, and they are going together nicely.
