Presidentís Message: I hope everyone had a great summer. Mine was very busy. A lot of my time was spent with my husband eating at some of his favorite restaurants before his surgery. At the beginning of August, I went to the UFDC Convention in Orlando and had a wonderful time. Thank goodness the hotel was fantastic because going outside was not on my schedule. It was ridiculously hot and humid. We had our annual club picnic and lovely tour at Canterbury Shaker Village. Next up was Jon's surgery at Mass General and it went very well. He is now home recovering. Thank you for all your good wishes and support. Remember the Doll Show is on Sunday, September 17th and I hope to see many of you there. It is going to be a good show with a number of new sellers. Trudi
Program: At our September meeting, Peg Farwell will present the report from UFDCís Annual Meeting, with info from the National Convention from other members who attended. In the Show and Tell portion of the program, besides Summer Finds, where we share new additions to our collections, we also want to see your Summer Creations for the dolls in your life. Letís see what you have been working on!
Doll Show: Our annual Doll Show is coming up fast! At the September meeting, we will be lining up volunteers and finalizing the last minute details. If you canít come to the meeting, but are available to volunteer, please let Trudi know ASAP. See you at the show!
Updates to Bylaws & Standing Rules: Trudi and Zendelle met over the summer and reviewed our clubís Bylaws and Standing Rules. A couple of things need to be updated to bring them in line with UFDCís Bylaws. A few other changes are being recommended to streamline our Standing Rules and make them reflect our clubís actual practices. We will have copies of the proposed changes and a full discussion in October.
