The Very Special Person award is given annually to a member who has given notable service to the Guild. The intention of the VSP Award is to honor members of the Guild who do things for the Guild, often quietly and behind the scenes, not recognized by thank you blocks or other forms of acknowledgement. The following Very Special People are one of the reasons the Guild is so special.
In 2021 our community continued to face challenges from the pandemic and members of our guild stepped up to meet them. In addition to the 2021 Very Special Person award given to Claire Witherspoon and Katie Woods, the guild wishes to recognize Kathleen Howard as a 2021 COVID Champion for stepping up and being our virtual quilt show chair, putting together our fabulous 2021 quilt show online when otherwise we would have had no quilt show at all.
