I must say this year has flown by! We have had a wonderful year with great turnouts at every meeting, wonderful show and tells and terrific programs and workshops. Thanks so all who made it possible.
We are thrilled to announce that our "Volunteer of the Year Award" for 2017 is our amazing and energetic Ann Phelan. President Christine Bell spoke of Ann –
This year as in the past we asked you, the members, to nominate your choices for the 2017 Volunteer Award. The rules are that it must be for exceptional volunteering for the Guild during the past year. Of the nominations received, an overwhelming number of them were for one person, so the decision was pretty easy. Before I announce this years recipient, I ask our past recipients to stand …..
Diane MacMillan and Valerie Langille in 2015 and Barb Robson in 2016. Now I am pleased to tell you that Ann Phelan is the Mahone Bay Quilters’ Guild 2017 volunteer of the year
Some of the reasons you chose Ann are for her work with the raffle quilt, the financial review, venue survey, yard sale, contributing to new member tea, for her enthusiasm and leadership, she helps make all events "feel good", you can count on Ann, she's always smiling, for her energy and attitude and as someone said, "she encouraged me to join the guild"
Congratulations Ann, well deserved!
