th Wednesdays of the month from 2-4pm.
Evelyn Van Orden said that she and Cindy Vogel attended the TKGA convention in Oakland.
She indicated that there might not be any more Burbank shows.
We voted on having easy and light refreshments each month, and a sign-up sheet was put on the table for 2 members each month to sign up to bring either something sweet or something munchy.
1. Judy Gregory is about to send some boxes of wool things.
2. Danial Streeter volunteers at the Positive Image Center of the City of Hope, where they treat cancer, diabetes, and other serious illnesses.
They are very happy to receive chemo caps and afghans, of various sizes.
They serve adults and children.
Items should be washable and soft, with seamless caps.
3. Jerri Nicol announced that she has taken 3 shawls from members to Windsor Manor Retirement Facility.
Also, Betty Molinaro gave 1 baby layette(sweater, hat, booties) to the Christ Child Society in April and is planning to give 2 baby layettes, 6 baby hats, 2 pairs of booties, and 4 baby blankets this week.
All of these items were made by our members.
4. Wool items donated were 1 child’s sweater, several baby hats, and several pairs of socks.
5. Jerri Nicol will update the ongoing list of charities.

1. Deborah Kac jokingly felt that we should have a session with Judy Gregory to teach us how to read and knit at the same time.
Lynne Emery added that there are available now lighted knitting needles!
We decided to have a mentoring session.
Members will bring patterns that they would like to make or are having trouble with, and we will divide into pairs or groups for assistance with knitting/crocheting problems.
