Hurricane Gustav's impact stretches beyond the Gulf Coast. Our September Superstar, Jackie Erickson-Schweitzer, won't be able to attend. Her home is in a suburb of New Orleans, so she and her family will need to spend time dealing with the aftermath of the storm. Our Senior Vice President of Workshops, Debra, is working hard to re-schedule Jackie. Our understanding is that Jackie and her family did evacuate to the safety of another state where they have relatives. Our best wishes go out to them.
We will still have a September meeting. Thanks to Ellen's bright idea, we'll be having a book show & tell. Several members will be showing and talking about a favorite book that has provided knitting inspiration. As we'll have a variety of speakers with a range of viewpoints, this should be an interesting program. This also means that we should have lots of time for our regular show and tell.
See ya'all on Thursday night!
