RCQG

The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 11.

Our December 11, 2018, meeting will be a time to eat and socialize, as we will be having a Guild Member Pot Luck Dinner. Please come for 6:00 PM, as we plan to eat at 6:30 PM.

We are asking the members whose Surname begins with;

  • A-G bring an Appetizer or Salad,
  • H-O to bring a Main Dish,
  • P-Z to bring a Dessert.

Your dish should be enough food for 10-12 people to ensure variety for all members. Remember to label items containing nuts or seafood or if your dish is gluten free. Please provide serving utensils. If needed, put your name on your dishes and utensils.

We will not be providing place settings, so everyone needs to bring their own plate(s), cutlery, mug, placemat and napkin. Coffee, tea and water will be provided.

Please be sure to bring a donation for the Three Willows United Church Food Bank, some money to buy tickets for the Penny Sale. There is a theme for Show and Share too.  Check for full details on all these items in the December 2018 Newsletter which is now posted on the RCQG website.

For Show and Share, lets focus our items on Christmas.  I am sure that we all have made items,  for this year or previous years, that have a story behind them.  Please bring and share your stories with your quilting family.
Thank you so much for the generous donations for our Penny Sale, it is sure to be a success.  The amount of stuff brought in has led me to believe that quilters are pack rats.  Remember to bring some extra cash to pick up some bargains.
Food Bank Donations
In the spirit of the season, the Guild has suggested the members bring a non perishable food item to be donated to the Steps Program. This program is run by Immigration Services at Three Willows United Church. On Thursdays, the group provides support for 150-200 individuals, right here in our community.   Currently the most needed items include canned tuna, canned chicken, skim milk powder, long grain rice, and cereal, if we could focus on these items it would be appreciated.  There is a shopping cart outside the Church office for you to drop off your donations.  Willows United Church has been so good  to our guild in fulfilling our requests it would be terrific to reciprocate. This is such a compelling story of need in our community it would be great if the  members embraced this  request and donated these items throughout the year.
Other items requested are:
Cans of low sodium tomatoes
Low sodium pasta sauce
Cans of kidney beans, chick peas, and black beans
Cans of low sodium soup
Rice
Pasta, elbow macaroni and spaghetti preferred
Quinoa
High Fibre breakfast cereal
Rolled Oats and plain instant oatmeal
Powdered milk, Soy and Rice milk
Canned Salmon and tuna
Toilet paper
Personal Hygiene products – shampoo, soap, razors, feminine hygiene products, deodorant
Laundry Detergent (not liquid). Pods are ideal as they portion well.
Dish Soap
Can Openers
Cooking Oil
Salad Dressing
