Please consider volunteering for next years BSNJ leadership positions. We are at the end of the term this year and positions must be filled. We will be seeking nominations for officers, board members, AND volunteers to contact members to inform them of the nominations. Our current Board has generously given time and effort to provide two years of wonderful activities and programs. If you enjoyed coming and benefitted from their work, its time to give back. Its not that hard. They all have families, careers, and responsibilities and still managed success. You can too. Give it some thought. Let's keep our legacy going!!!

She will be offering a special workshop and sale of the Conetastic tool for the Bead Society in the near future. More information to come.
