The April 6 Thimble Club meeting was a busy one. Following an interesting and informative talk by Allison Renck from the High Country 4H Club, we enjoyed hearing from two of its members, Savra and Crystal, who invited us to a fundraiser for the club to be held in May at the Renck home.

Officers for the 2017-2018 fiscal year were elected. The outgoing officers, President Shaaron Chambers, Vice President Annie Ashby, Recording Secretary Kathryn Allen and Treasurer Tonie Ford, were thanked and received flowers and very nice gifts of appreciation. Particular thanks were given to our wonderful President Shaaron Chambers and Vice President Annie Ashby, both of whom have served as officers for several years and now are taking a well-deserved break.

The new officers elected for the coming year are President Sally Kaspar, Vice President Carol Wright, Recording Secretary Kathryn Allen, and Treasurer Tonie Ford. The ladies were inducted into office and received flower bouquets.

In celebration of April, many members wore fancy hats and we all enjoyed the wide variety and imagination expressed by the hats.

We are looking forward to an exciting new fiscal year, in which we will continue to serve the wonderful Anza community. We always welcome new members, no sewing required. The Thimble Club is a local philanthropic women’s group started by local farmers’ and ranchers’ wives more than 104 years ago.
