Mark your calendar for Saturday, April 14, 2018.  We are planning a big bus trip to the Chicago International Quilt Festival.  We will have a fun filled day with hundreds of quilts to admire and also hundreds of vendors where you will find just the right items to purchase.  The bus will leave Muskegon at 6:15 AM.  It will also stop at Meijer in Grand Haven at 6:45 to pick up our Lighthouse members joining us.  We will stop for breakfast and arrive in Chicago just in time for the show to begin.  After a busy, exciting day at the show, we can relax on the bus and will stop for dinner on the way home.  We welcome all Lighthouse members to join us.  The cost for the day is $65.00, $70.00 for nonmembers.  This includes the bus fee and show ticket.  You are responsible for your own meals.  Signup will begin at the January general meeting and the following week at Lighthouse Guild meeting.  Checks should be made out to PALS.
