2021 West End Fair- Whew, another fair is history and what a week it was! Rainy weather sure put a damper on our sales. But on the bright side, we had a great team of members who helped with preparations, cleaning and staffing. Our fair committee welcomes any suggestions or improvements for next year. Hopefully, most of our bills will be in and paid by this month’s meeting for a financial report. There are a few items left that we’d like to sell which will add to our profit. We have unopened BBQ sauce, ketchup, horseradish, our homemade French & Celery Seed Dressing, and frozen shortcakes. We will bring them to our September Meeting. As always, we had some equipment failures along the way but the handy men took care of it. A special thank you goes out to all the hubbies who helped!

Group Display -Woo Hoo!! Congratulations to Bonnie P. and Isabel P. for winning a Blue Ribbon on our Club’s Group Display! They did an awesome job of hand painted roses for a “Blooming” back ground and depicting our community service projects throughout the display.

Back of Stand Decorations– Sharon and Jim G. did a wonderful job of decorating the back of our stand!! The fair did not judge the decorations this year but it certainly was a Blue Ribbon Display! The little white picket fence and sunshine added such a nice touch.

Quilts Made With Love– We’ve scheduled a sewing session for Thursday, September 16th at 9:30 am. It will be held at the home of Pat M. Our lap quilts are donated to clients of Meals on Wheels. If you enjoy sewing, we welcome you to join us.

Our Club’s 50th Anniversary -The Anniversary Committee is excited about the plans for a memorable 50th year celebration on October 2nd at Chestnuthill Township Community Center. They are happy that many of our club members, past presidents, and dignitaries will be attending. Thanks to Vicki C. for chairing this event.
