The Quit Show Cometh!

August 9, 2012

Dear Friends-

As you know, this weekend is the our Quilt Show Along The Lake event here in Roseville! Tonight we will have the final planning meeting to discuss all the details and begin packing up to head out to the park first thing tomorrow morning!

We have been very successful in recruiting volunteers this year. We thank all of you who have signed up or helped us out in any way. The Methodist women were so gracious in supplying us with extra tables for our pie tent this year and we just can't thank you enough! It was unfortunate when all of our tables suddenly slipped off the back of Sam's Produce truck during the rainstorm and then got run over by the construction bulldozer on his way into town, but those things can't be helped! Good thing we are all friends here in town and are willing to go the extra mile to help one another!

Also, I'd like to thank all of the businesses in town who have so generously donated door prizes this year. This raffle drawing is  our new fundraiser at the Friends Squared Quilts tent to help add to the Roseville High School Scholarship Fund. We especially thank the Roseville Lions Club for the donation of the snowblower! Wow! That should help bring in people right there! Remember how deep the snow was last winter?

Finally, I've been asked to remind everyone that this show brings in a lot of tourists to Roseville. Please be helpful in giving out correct directions as to places around town. Last year, we had a group of tourists lost out in the country driving around for nearly an hour looking for the park. Let's put on our Roseville smiles and welcome all of our guests. Remember each dollar spent here in town helps to keep our small businesses thriving!

See you at the quilt show!
