OUR MARCH 7th MEETING IS MOVING!!!!
Our wonderful host church for the HRQG meetings has been in touch with Sue Hart to say that their parking lot is still largely unusable. Sue jumped in to action and made arrangements with St. Andrew's Church, 17 Church Street, Hanover for HRQG to hold our March 7th guild meeting in their church hall. Thanks to Sue for making these arrangements. Please carpool if possible to save on parking spaces.
Here is a link to the church website with info on directions and parking: http://www.standrewshanover.org/sta/St._Andrews/Directions_%26_Parki
We will have a board meeting starting at 8:30AM, the guild meeting will start at 9:30AM (trunk show by Dawn Gauthier) and there is room at the church hall for those that want to stay and make comfort quilts after the meeting.
Have faith that Spring will be here eventually. Stay safe, stay warm, and keep on quilting. We look forward to seeing all of you on March 7th at St. Andrew's Church.

REMEMBER TO WEAR YOUR NAME BADGES!
When Herring Run Quilt Guild was first formed in February 1989 one of the conditions for membership was making and wearing name badges. The motivation behind the badge requirement was to make it easier for members to get to know one another. As our numbers have increased, it has become even more important than ever to honor the intent of our founding mothers. Please wear your badge. Your intricate identifiers help us to put names and faces together. Besides, it’s not like you’re working in the customer service department, we’re having fun! We look forward to the day when we no longer need to collect fines for badges not worn! We have two different versions of our name badge, one with the HR symbol and one of a paper pieced fish that was designed by Carol Doak.

Sunshine Information: Do you know of someone in the guild that has had a personal loss or is seriously ill? Please pass this information on to our Vice President, Jennifer Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 781-925-0754 so we can send cards, flowers or donations from the guild. Please make sure you give her the full name, address and information on where to send a donation if one is requested.
Workshop registration: You will need to pre-register and pay at the same time to hold your space.
Hospitality: It is every HRQG member’s caloric duty to contribute to our communal sustenance for at least one meeting per year. September’s goodies are provided by your board members.
WE'RE GOING GREEN!To help protect the environment, honor the requests of the Church, and cut down on our monthly bills, we would like guild members to bring their own coffee mugs to the meetings if at all possible.
