The 2019 Dutchess Heritage Quilt did very well, our income was up in every category, and our
expenses remain fairly consistent. As a result the committee has voted to present Dutchess
community college foundation with a check in the amount of $7,500. A beautiful addition to our
And the best news is, we have a new chairman for the 2021 quilt show! Meegan Veeder-Shave
was elected chairman for Dutchess Heritage quilt show XX. I am delighted that Megan has
stepped forward, she has a wealth of experience on the committee. She first joined the
committee for the 2001 show as treasurer. In 2003 she moved to acquisitions where she
managed the largest number of quilts we have ever exhibited, 213 quilts. She continued in the
acquisition’s role through 2009. In 2011 she moved to publicity and the web master. From 2013
through 2015 she was co-chairman. Wow, the show is clearly in good hands!
Meegan will be looking to solidify Committee roles after the New Year. I strongly encourage
you to jump in. This is a rare and unique opportunity to be a part of a very special community
that is doing really great work.
It has been my honor to serve as your guide these past two shows, and as I step away it is with
a light heart, knowing that this legacy will continue well beyond any of us.
With affection and gratitude,
