Shhh, it's a secret!

Our October meeting was a potluck.  We met at our President's home because the heat wasn't working at the guild room.  We have an amazing bunch of cooks in our membership.  It was supposed to be a simple soup, bread and dessert dinner, but nobody paid attention to that.  We had 3 types of autumn soups, home made breads, cheeses, crackers, salads, fruits, pickles and desserts. There was no way anyone could be hungry after all that.

Robert was the surprise guest of honour.  His wife knew, but he didn't and we all managed to keep it a secret.   He was receiving a service award from the OHS.  This photo is of Robert and our OHS representative, who seems like a very nice and charming lady.

Robert has an engineering knack with equipment.  He can look at a loom and with our rather vague, it's not doing this or it's doing that, he tweaks and twists and poof, the equipment is back to working.   He weaves, he repairs, he assembles, he disassembles and makes what specialty equipment we need once in a while.   All the while he shares information, is always cheerful, friendly and welcoming. 

Well deserved recognition for our Robert.
