  • Please call first when attending at private homes. Occasionally, it’s necessary for programs to change after the newsletter is printed.

Several members have inquired about ordering ASG name badges. The badges can be ordered from Dell Awards Company in California. The badges will have the ASG Logo, the Chapter’s name and your name. A badge with a pin on the back is $9 and with a magnet $11 plus shipping. Each Neighborhood Group Leader has the details for ordering the badges.

      Many of the neighborhood groups are having zoom meetings during the pandemic if you’re interested. I was just about to update that info on the website. We’d love to have you! Thanks so much! Rebecca

      Hi Sandra! Welcome! There is a group that meets in Port St. Lucie and meets on Saturdays at Laura’s Sewing and Quilt which would probably be the closest to you. Check out our neighborhood group page to see other groups in the surrounding area. Prospective members can attend any local group meetings twice before joining. Hope to see you soon! Becky

We love hearing from you! Please leave a comment.
