Announcing a CONTEST among our 13 chapters to see which chapter can obtain the most new members before Questers State Annual Spring Convention. There will be two chapters recognized number of new members and for the greatest percentage of increase of members.
Think of all your friends and neighbors. Maybe there is someone who you would like to get to know better.

- Questers are good people.
- Questers are very social.
- The programs are interesting.
- New members will learn to love Preservation & Restoration.
I want to apologize to chapters who have full membership right now. I congratulate you on you previous efforts to keep you chapter full. Share your secrets with the other chapters who need more members.
I am hoping to see all of you at FALL FUN FESTIVAL. Come dressed in Roaring 20s clothing on Friday September 28. We will have fun together. Saturday meeting, September 29 has two good programs:

Scrapbook for 2018-19
This is what I have in mind for the scrapbook for this year. I would like it to be a digital scrapbook. Usually they are paper and given to the current president. I want to be able to share "my" scrapbook with all Arkansas Questers. I want it to have emphasis on P&R projects and accomplishments and highlight new members.
I will ask the Historian, Bonnie Tatom to remind you in the fall to send in your submissions as the year goes along. Write a short email describing your picture that you attach. The emails will be sent to Mary Ellen Gardner to be turned into a document under Bonnie's direction. We can all view it on our website.
Fundraising at FFF:
On Friday night there will be at least 3 tubs of silent auction goodies to bid on that one might enjoy in their room "afterwards" that night.
We will have a donations jar on Saturday. It is for individuals or chapters. It is going to P&R so anyone may place monies in the jar.
If any chapter or individual wants to contribute (not mandatory) to either of these fundraising endeavors, feel free to contribute items to auction (Friday) or checks/cash to be deposited (Saturday).
