Subject: GSSB Spring General Meeting – 14 Apr 2018
Happy first day of Spring – at least according to the calendar. Once again someone forgot to tell Mother Nature that winter is officially over as we hunker down for our fourth Nor’easter in 3 weeks.
I am happy to announce that our 2018 Spring general meeting will take place on Saturday, 14 Apr 18 @ 11:30 AM. The meeting will be hosted by Anne Choi of Middle Brook Fiberworks in Bedminster, NJ. We will have our general meeting, a farm tour and a dyeing workshop that Anne will conduct so dress comfortable and wear farm clothes. Meeting will be rain or shine. Lunch will be served.
Our general meeting agenda will include an update from Reni on our roll out of the GSSB Youth Ambassador pilot for 2018, an update on last month’s ASI meeting as well as a report out on last year’s festival and current plans for this year’s festival. Of course we will have our very popular door prizes for members in attendance.
In addition, we are in need of electing a trustee to replace Royal since his term has expired. He has graciously agreed to remain on until a new trustee is elected. Nominations for this trustee position are now open and will be closed during our meeting. If you would like to nominate someone for the position, please reach out to an officer or let Andrea know. Alternatively, you can make a nomination at the meeting.
Anne’s Farm is located in Somerset County minutes away from interstates 287 and 78. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is an opportunity to get updates on our group’s events, meet and interact with with other area shepherds and learn about dyeing fiber in a hands on workshop from an artisan that does it professionally.
We would like to get a head count for lunch so please let us know if you are attending as well as if you may have any food allergies.
Looking forward to seeing you at the meeting.
Cheers, Kevin Melvin
