It came to my attention that soon the Quilt Show Along The Lake show will be upon us. Have you signed up to volunteer? We are still in great need of parking attendants, food booth assistants and "quilt angels." The "quilt angels" are responsible for turning edges of quilts on display to the backside so that admirers may see the stitching on the back. All interested in this unique volunteer opportunity needs to call us at Friends Squared Quilts by next Wednesday. We have a one-hour training session for all "angels," as this is a very delicate job and can also involve some "customer service" issues at times, so it is vital that we're all on the same track. Also, you'll need to be properly fitted for your "white gloves." They are vital with this position.

A few women stopped by yesterday to let me know they have decided to organize a "Roseville Beautification Committee." They feel that there needs to be a group of citizens who are dedicated to seeing that the trash and debris is picked up, flowers are planted and weeded around the city park and funds are raised to support community projects. One very interesting item on their agenda is to possibly clean-up the former Royal Rose theatre on the square! How many years has that sad building sat empty and dilapidated next to Gus's Grocery? So many of us here in Roseville remember our first movie or date there. That sure sounds like a big undertaking their first time out, but what do I know? I am an owner of quilt shop! I applaud and support anyone willing to join the effort in keeping our little town as beautiful as possible! Clara Doolittle has graciously agreed to spearhead this effort and she asks that you call her if you are interested. You can call her anytime except Thursday afternoons, as she has a regular date with her card group at the senior center. She said if you just want to pop in over there and talk to her in person, that's fine also.

So, that's about it for today-lots to do down at Friends Squared Quilts so I'd better get running!
