The guild maintains a current web site where you will find our monthly newsletter, current and upcoming events and special projects or activities. Several of the sections are password protected: you will be given that information when you join the guild.

All members are given a Mail Folder which is located at the door upon arrival to a meeting.  Members are asked to check their folder when they arrive at the monthly meetings.
