The other thing to be thinking about is what you're going to bring for the potluck. Trot out your favorite dish-to-pass be it appetizer, bread, dip, salad, whatever floats your boat. Make sure to bring what you'd like to drink and a serving implement if needed; the Guild supplies plates, silverware, and napkins. Don't worry too much about calories because most of us will eat standing up and everyone knows that calories you eat standing up don't count.
Our new Membership Chair, Kathy Eisenchink asked me to post this information about membership renewal date being changed and the amount of dues going up a bit:
"At the last Guild Meeting, it was decided to move the annual membership renewal to January, therefore, renewal dues of $20.00 will be due by January 31, 2016. (The exception being anyone who joined in the months of September, October or November; their renewal dues will be with $5.00.)"
