Elections are held at the May meeting, with the newly elected officers sharing one month of office (May to June) with the outgoing officer. Then the new officer is officially inducted at our July meeting. Board offices are: President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Program, Special Events, Newsletter, Publicity, Philanthropy, Hospitality, Library and Membership.
Some of our (new) RQG traditions include:

Yearly activities include: weekend quilt camp, quilt show with an anual miniature quilt auction, guild challange, secret pals, and a fun activity: the "brown bag challange" (Participants bring 3 or 4 fabrics in a brown bag with their name sealed inside an envelope fastened to the outside of the bag. The bags are enchanged, the envelope is removed, and the recipient's name is written on the outside of the envelope. These are collected and saved. Participants then have 4 or 5 months to make a small wall hanging, top only, with the fabrics in the bag. They are then brought back to guild, and the envelopes are opened, names are revealed, and the tops are given back to the person who originally brought the fabrics. So you get your own fabrics back, but it's a suprise what they have been made into.)
