Our next meeting will be held at 7:00 PM on Monday evening, October 2nd, in the second floor Community Room at the Waldemere Fire Station at 2070 Waldemere St. in Sarasota, FL. Here is a Google Map link with the location: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Sarasota+County+Fire+Department+Station+2/@27.3135246,-82.5323011,15z/data=!4m8!1m2!2m1!1sfire+station+near+Waldemere+Street,+Sarasota,+FL!3m4!1s0x88c3405b3fb7fde7:0x706a968f3e07601d!8m2!3d27.3189581!4d-82.5281383?hl=en&authuser=1. When parking at the fire station – please be aware that the wire fence enclosed area is only for firefighters–do not park in that area. If the lot is full, after 6:00 PM you can park in the lot of the office building just to the south of the fire station.

Minutes from our September meeting (that was held on August 28th due to the Labor Day Holiday) will be presented. To expedite our Business Meeting, minutes are not read, although members will be asked for any additions/corrections–and for approval of the minutes as written. Our business meeting will begin at 7 PM, followed by the presentation of our beading project.

Our October beading project is the colorful "Wave Bracelet" designed and taught by Fatima Mensen-Potter. A materials list and photos are shown below. Fatima will have kits available in many different colors at a cost of $15 each. If you do not wish to do the project, you are welcome to bring your own beading projects to work on during the evening.

See you at the meeting!
