From the President of Pine Tree Quilters Guild, Inc.—Callie Lavoie

This is my last year as your president of Pine Tree Quilters Guild, Inc. This is my third two-year term reaching our term limits. 

Have you thought about leading our wonderful, spirited, friendly quilt guild? We have a generous group of volunteers that support and lead our guild on the Executive Board as a core for our larger General Board. Our annual quilt show has an engaged and hard-working group of volunteers led by a show coordinator balancing it all.

Pine Tree Quilters Guild, Inc.’s mission is clearly stated in our Bylaws and Procedures Manual and Appendix. This document is an excellent working guideline for the operation of our guild. 

Nominations for this position will be considered starting in January 2024 with office starting October 1, 2024. Please contact Callie if you have questions or wish to be considered for nomination working with our nominating committee.

Callie  – president@mainequilts.org; 207-641-7966c.
