November From the President…

Hello KANG Members!
 
Just a quick reminder that the Executive Board meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday the 16th this month due to voting processes at the Community Center.
 
All members are welcome to attend the Executive Board meetings.  You can find minutes from the meetings on the Members Resource page on the website (you’ll need the password from your current membership card to log in).  Typically, we have a full docket to cover, I really appreciate everyone being so well prepared and punctual.
 
A special heart felt thank you to all of our KANG members who donate hand knit, crocheted and woven charity items.  Please, take a moment to log the items you donate, through the Guild or personally (ministries, church, animal shelters etc.) at your Chapter meeting and remember personal toiletries are also accepted and passed on.  It was a huge blessing and so insightful to meet and absorb Star of Hope’s Outreach Case Manager Mr. Kenneth Eakins message at the Charity Knit-in.  Personally, I was so touched by his emotional gratefulness for the bounty of hand knit hats (with an inclusion of a new pair of black socks) and scarves our Guild members have blessed the homeless men of Houston with.  Mr. Eakins has a wonderful message of insight, partnership, hope, future vision and encouragement for all of Harris County. Your generosity enables him to reach out and form relationships with people and a hand-knit item is a wonderful gift of humanity and love.  He generously answered LOTS of questions, blessed our meal and stayed to eat with us.  What a wonderful day, thank you Ann Furlough for providing our Guild with this opportunity!  
 
I wish everyone a very blessed Thanksgiving, and I look forward to meeting up with those of you who are attending the Renaissance Festival!
