Membership reminder
After the November 2021 meeting we dropped people who had not paid for the 2021-22 guild year from our InfoBlast mailing list and changed the password for the website’s members only area. Guild membership has been temporarily lowered to $30 this year. Please keep our community whole and thriving by joining us. We have a lot of really wonderful programs planned.
