We regret to inform you that long time member Mavis Street passed away on June 10. Mavis joined our Guild in 1970 and was president in 1991-1992. She was very creative and worked on the boutique for many years. Many of us still have her beautiful name tags she made for the fashion show committees. For years she made shadow boxes for the presidents that were presented to them at the end of their term. Mavis was a valuable member of the Guild and will surely be missed. There will be two visitations for Mavis on Friday, June 15 at Moss Feaster, 1320 Main St.
The Holiday Tour of Homes will be Saturday, December 2, 2017. We have four great homes, the Dunedin Fine Arts Center, and six apartments at Mease Manor to show during this tour. This year there is a change in venue for the Tea and Boutique – it will be in the auditorium at Mease Manor. With the change in Tea locations, our duties as members will change a little – but we still have plenty of jobs to do. Please read the list below and start planning how you can contribute to the success of this year’s tour: Giving Trees (opportunities are sold to win these).
“Drop Off Your Drawers” October is the month for this project for Clothes to Kids. The Guild participates by contributing underwear which is given to children who qualify to “shop” at the Clothes To Kids store (babies through teenage) . Oftentimes children who are suddenly taken into foster care leave their homes without any clothes or personal items at all. This project helps make sure that they have new underwear. All sizes are needed but there is sometimes an extra need for larger sizes, even adult sizes for some of the teens. It must be in the package or hanger or tagged – please don’t take it
