Hobbies are a part of our personal history..and we love history...
Calling all members: We are looking for members willing to participate in a display of their hobbies at our June Meeting. Tables will be set up for members to show 1 or 2 samples of their work. We will have several minutes to hold up or point to their hobby and state when and how they started, their reason for con- tinuing and who receives their resulting work.
Some examples: Bee Keeping, Crocheting, Calligraphy, Knitting, Painting, musical instrument, sewing, etc.
