The Warwick Valley Quilters Guild recently held their annual Holiday luncheon and Installation of Officers for 2017. President Susan Krieger of Salisbury Mills, NY is taking a second term as is Vice President Sandy Pason of New Windsor, NY, and Treasurer Carol L. Johnson of Shohola, PA. The new Secretary is Mary Ihde of Chester. New Trustee, Judy Veltidi of Suffern, NY is beginning her three year term.
Attending the luncheon were representatives from Orange County Children’s Services, Anne Marie Myruski and Brooke Livingston. This has become a yearly event and the Guild was able to present close to 200 drawstring bags, made by Guild members, to be used by the children for their personal items. In addition, hand-knitted hats, brushes and combs, toothbrushes, coloring books, reading books and other toys were also donated for the children.
The Warwick Valley Quilters Guild meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays at 10 a.m. in the Warwick Senior Meeting Hall behind Town Hall, located at 132 Kings Hwy., Warwick. For more information on the Guild, visit at www.WVQG.org.
