Jeanne started the business meeting with a flurry of information pertinent to the two fundraiser
events in which we will be participating. First, Hogs and Hens on October 15, and second,Meals on Wheels on November 19. Both events will be held at the Abbeville Livery Stables.
The focus today was the sewing of items to sell at the fundraisers. Also, Jeanne asked everyone to bring the items they are making at home to the October 10th meeting. We will take inventory and decide which ones will work in raffle baskets and which ones will work for individual sales. Any unpriced items will be priced that day. This ‘dress rehersal’ will give us a chance to familiarize ourselves with the items for sale.

New Business: Jeanne related that Anne (one of the quilters for QOV) is nearly ready to do the quilting again. She has several now and we have several to deliver to her. In honor of our policemen, Karen offered to make large blue bows for those who want them. She asked that those interested bring her 5 yards of 2-1/2” blue ribbon. A new focus for QOV is to identify veterans who are serving our communities as policemen.
