So help support the Chapter by putting your craft skills to work, dust off those prints/books/antiques that are in your closet or under your bed and bring them to the annual meeting. Handmade items are always welcome! As always, the committee is interested in your ideas and suggestions on how to improve this event and keep it enjoyable and exciting for all.
