Our last meeting was in East Peoria, IL. June 12 – 15, 2019.
June Kucia and Judy Escallier were co-hostesses! They planned many exciting tours and programs!
The theme for the auxiliary displays was “Baubles, Trinkets and Treasures”.
There were two tours Thursday – Tour #1 – was an historic tour of Peoria with a stop at the John C. Flanagan historic home. Tour #2 – was to the Caterpillar Visitors Center and Museum. Followed by a stop at the Flanagan House to view their tool collection. The tours were enjoyed by all!
There were many that shared during Show and Tell! Quilts, paintings, needlework and more!
The book chosen for discussion was “News of the World” by Paulette Jiles. Frances Fite led us in a lively discussion.
