As I have mentioned in many newsletters, the guild is only as strong as its members. We worked hard last year to bring up our numbers and offer diverse programs. I ask again now: WIll any members step forward and offer their homes, community centers or theaters as a place to hold our meetings? We need people to do workshops, shows, and hosting. San Leandro is very generous with us. We get large rooms any time we need them and at no cost to the guild. Fort Mason averages $75.00 a meeting. And yet….San Leandro is scheduled to host our annual guild holiday party in January, and the library wishes to continue its involvement with us for the “Day of Puppetry” in April. I’m open to suggestions; I very much need your support. Thanks.
