Where do I begin. It is hard to believe that we have not been together since the March Mixer. Given the news we have been hearing from our governor, it looks like we will not be able to get back together until September, at the earliest.

I am in the process of trying to confirm with the Grass Valley Charter School, the SDA church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Eskaton as to the status of using their facilities when we do meet again. Nancyan Tracy has told me that her church is closed and we will not be able to use the pavilion for our July picnic.

I have been hearing that so many of our guild members are making masks and surgical caps. Sophia Day has made over 500 masks. I have cut out 226 surgical caps that others have sewn together. The surgical caps have gone to the Medical First Responders of Santa Clara County and to Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital. It would be wonderful to hear from more of you who have been doing so much to help during this time. It is so heartwarming to know that our guild and so many others in the county are trying to do whatever they can.

As I am writing this message in the month of May, I realized that Teacher’s Appreciation Week was May 4 through May 8. I would like to recognize and give thanks to our teachers. When I was a working parent of two children, I relied on their teachers to educate my children. Now that I am retired, with friends who are retired teachers, I have come to realize that their school day did not end when the bell rang. They still needed to prepare for the next day, grade papers, even buy school supplies with their own money. With the end of the physical school year, teachers have done even more to continue to educate from home. I wanted to give a big THANK YOU to all the teachers out there!

I would like to finish with special thanks to Myrna and Loren Raglin. You have given so much of your time to making our guild what it is today. I wish you much happiness in the next chapter of your lives. You will be deeply missed!
