Annual General Meeting
Karen and Kim thanked Sue for her leadership as convenor for the past 12 months and presented her with a flower arrangement.
The new Convenor, Kim, welcomed her committee, a mix of new and longer serving members.
The committee has planned and organised an interesting and diverse program for 2020 with lots of activities including:
- sit and sew,
- guest speakers,
- social dining out and shop visit
Kim presented the Marjorie Horwood award to Karen
and the Margaret Goldman award to Bronwyn.
Sue went over the guidelines for the Convenor’s challenge for 2019/20 and invited members to share their projects.
On the last weekend of February some members of CQI made a quilt for a family caught up in the bush fires around Bowral.
Viive Howell the Research Director of the Bill Walsh Cancer Research Laboratory advised us that the $7000 raised from proceeds of our 2019 Quilt Exhibition contributed towards the purchase of a ‘Cell Analyzer’ machine. The machine will be utilised for all their cancer research projects.
Show & Tell
