We had our last gathering for the year on November 28th, and it also served as our Annual General Meeting. Our President Judie was unable to attend due to illness (thankfully, she's on the mend now), so Treasurer Yvonne ably conducted proceedings.The new committee comprises:
President - Judie Bellingham
Secretary - Cynthia Gray
Treasurer - Yvonne Atkinson
Blog Editor - Beverley Young
The position of Vice President remains vacant and we'd welcome anyone who'd like to take this position (don't be frightened that you'll automatically have to step up for President next time - it doesn't necessarily follow).
Many thanks to the outgoing committee members, VP Sue and Sec Lorraine, for the great job they have done for the past year.
After the meeting the girls got busy sorting quilts to be given to the Gympie and Maryborough Special Schools - 142 quilts in all will be delivered shortly along with 1 quilt to raffle and 15 weighted blankets for each school.

In addition, 7 quilts and 3 crochet rugs have been delivered to Katie Rose Cottage in Doonan and 9 new pairs of children's pyjamas to Lions Emergency Accommodation.WOW, what a fabulous effort - well done everyone!

We won't be meeting in December, so here's wishing a safe and happy festive season to everyone and we'll meet again on January 30, 2012. (How can it be 2012 already???)
STOP PRESS: We are happy to announce that Anne Wells has volunteered to be the Vice President of Sunshine Linus for 2012. Welcome aboard Anne, it's great to have you with us.
