THE NEEDLEWORK GUILD OF AMERICA MINUTE SHEET to King's Daughter's Hospital, Home for the Aged, and the Social Services Bureau.

Letters were read from Mrs. Harold Cornett, national President, and Mrs. A. H. Desborough, Executive Director, inviting the Portsmouth Branch to send as many delegates as possible to the National Convention of the Needlework Guild of America to be held April 7th and 8th in Charlotte, North Carolina.

A letter was read from the national Director, Mrs. Leroy P. Leas, Stating that the Portsmouth Branch was short in $41.00 in Director's obligations. Each director is expected to contribute $1.00 to the National Group. She urged that we have a 100% contribution.

A spirited discussion followed the reading of this letter. Miss Jamie Neely moved, Mrs. McAlpine seconded, that the necessary amount to make up the $60.00, representing 60 directors, be taken from the treasury and sent to the National Treasurer. This has passed unanimously.

Mrs. McAlpine moved, Mrs. Owen seconded, that all present officers remain as they are and that the President and the Secretary check the Constitution to find out definitely the length of time each of the officers can serve. This was voted on in the affirmative.

The date of the May 1954 Ingathering was selected as May 5th or 6th according to the convenience of the Court Street Baptist Church where it is to be held.

The Secretary requested permission from the President to order a new Minute Book. Permission was granted.
