Could it be that it's almost the end of July already? How could that be possible? I heard conversation the other day while ringing up a customer at the quilt shop that school is only a few weeks off! Well, I think that's certainly an exaggeration! School in Roseville doesn't begin until after Labor Day! Besides, we have the Quilt Show Along The Lake next weekend! This is the absolute final call-out for volunteers! If you are interested, please stop in at Friends Squared Quilts and see what slots are still open. Thanks to all of you "quilt angels" who came to the training. It's great to see all of that enthusiasm!
As you have probably heard around town, the Roseville Resort Lodge will be sponsoring it's first fall quilt retreat. We're calling it "Rhonda's Reindeer Retreat" and it will be held the opening weekend of appropriately enough, hunting season! So, all of you hunting widows out there now have something to do! Gather up your quilting, scrapping or card making friends and help us celebrate the holiday season! We'll focus all of our efforts on getting those holiday gifts, cards and projects completed. Now, you'd better rest up because there will be a whole lot of coffee drinking and not too much sleeping. We'll have some big door prize drawings and a "midnight madness" quilt block exchange! We'll have all the information you need next to the register at Friends Squared Quilts, The Roseville Retreat Lodge office and also out at the check-in desk at The Holliday Inn. Tiffany said she was definitely going to be hosting the meals and snacks, so won't that be fun? Let me know if you'd like to attend so we can get your name on the list.
Spike's Skydiving Skool will be hosting an instructor training for all who are interested next Saturday from 11-2. This will only be a short training, then you will be jumping tandem with a licensed partner a couple of times later in the afternoon. You must be 18, and meet all the requirements to be considered for the training. Just stop out or call Skip if this type of ridiculous activity appeals to you.
That's about it for today. The whole Bauer family will be going to spend some time "up north" later in the week at Camp Luther, so there won't be a Roseville Blog on Wed-Friday. The Internet is spotty and it's just easier to give it up for a couple of days instead of worrying about it while I'm gone. I don't know about tomorrow either, since we'll be getting all packed up-but I'll try to stop in!
