Calling all Bee Groups

We have now contacted members in many of the bee groups and they are busy deciding on their theme for the raffle baskets. In order to have enough time to get information for our AGLC license and get tickets ready etc. we need to know of your bee group’s interest by the end of March!!!  And many thanks to Susan Johnson who has volunteered to wrap up all the baskets. For more information, contact Linda at

As mentioned in the last newsletter….

How would your bee group like to participate in our quilt show basket draw? We are asking bee groups whether they are interested in putting together a basket that will be raffled off at the quilt show. Attendees at the show can purchase tickets and place them in a box below their favorite basket, using a similar process to our banquet brown bag activity. I have talked to a few bee groups, and most are interested. Ticket sales will go towards the cost of the venue.  Items in the basket can be any theme like movie night, sewing supplies, etc. but we ask that only new items are included and that no homemade foods are placed in the basket. Which bee group can make the best, brightest, entertainingly stunning and fun basket?
