July 2019 - Installation of Officers and 44th anniversary celebration

On this 44th anniversary of the founding of the Quilters Guild of Greater Kansas City we were privileged to see the installation of the new officers for 2019-2020. B.J.Kruger was the spokesperson and did an excellent job. She gave flowers - fabric ones of course - to each of the officers as she read their office and duties. There was symbolism in the colors chosen for each office. Our new past president, Carol Crouse, received a bouquet of red roses. Our new co-presidents each received a bouquet of all the colors of the officers that will be working with them. Please enjoy the pictures below. There was laughter and fun as well as the seriousness of taking on new job responsibilites. If you click on a picture it will enlarge.
