May Meetings!

On Tuesday, May 19, we will be meeting at the Gilbert Historical Museum, located at 10 S. Gilbert Road, Gilbert.  Take this opportunity to visit the museum during their annual quilt show.  All types of quilts are on display through out the museum - and we'll get to enjoy seeing them on a meeting night!
