Grace Place is in need of pillows, pillow cases, and personal care type items. Thank you to all that brought in pillows & pillow cases and other items.  Linda J. did drop them off after meeting.  

If you wish to make pillowcases, please bring whatever you wish to our next meeting and they will be dropped off to them.  A pattern to be sent along with minutes.  We can meet at 3:00 pm for our next meeting to work on making cases as a group with some cutting, some pressing etc. so all wouldn’t need to bring their machines – please bring some fabric for the cases.  This will be a sewing project meeting so come when you can.  We will only have a brief business meeting.

 A motion carried to purchase up to $100 in new pillows SP/MT   (Linda J. reported back she bought 40 new pillows at Wal Mart after the meeting and delivered them.)  Any pillows donated must be in original packaging. 

We had agreed to be bringing in food items and other items for the Five Loaves instead of the basket drawing each month.  Please try to bring in what you can at the next meeting.

Motion carried to adjourn CP/NM.
