Please remember that you can only register your WIPS with Loretta until the end of the Febraury meeting. She will not be accepting any more WIP lists when the meeting is over.

  • Send that list to Loretta at lorettaromanko@gmail.com
  • E-transfer Loretta $2.00 for every item on the list using the email above
