Shemene Peckman, our Regional Director presided.
The order of business was to gather suggestions and opinions to change the name of "International Old Lacers, Inc." to something else. Some people felt the word "Old" perhaps discouraged young people from wanting to learn about making lace and joining. It was really a discussion only. Ideas and sugestions are to be taken back to the IOLI Board of Directors. It was noted that if the word "Old" was changed to another word starting with the letter "O" new stationary and other items could still be used without creating additional costs to IOLI.
Since nothing else was discussed or presented, I decided to ask 3 people from 3 different regions what they discussed. They all stated the possible name change was all they discussed.
Thank you for having me represent the DLS.
Happy New Year Lacers,
This is the time of the year when we make our new year's resolution-what is yours? Is it to learn a new type of lace or strengthen one that we have already learned? I also hope it is to attend as many lace meetings as possible and to encourage others to do the same. I look forward to seeing what each of our members are challenging themselves to do this year. Happy lacing my friends.
