CKKG is comprised of volunteer knitters. Fortunately, knitters are resourceful! CKKG leadership is comprised of a volunteer Board Members & CKKG Members. The Board Members are primarily responsible for maintaining the daily operations of the guild, maintaining communication with members and organizing meetings and events. If you are interested in helping out, please let us know! The more active members, the better the guild! In order to establish CKKG, a Board was developed to complete all the necessary tasks of maintaining an organization.
The 2019-2020 CKKG Board:
Chair: Sandee Zerger
Vice-Chair: Nancy Davis
Secretary: Shana Thornhill
Treasurer: Jeanne Groves
At Large Members: Brenda Pilger, Belinda Kidd, and Ashley Smith
CKKG members come from all over the central region of Kansas (primarily Harvey, McPherson, Butler, Sedgwick & Reno counties) which gives our group a diverse flavor of knitting styles & friendship! Friends are always welcome to come and check out our monthly meetings and participate in our events. So, grab your knitting & a friend and come join us on the 2nd Tuesday evening from 6-8pm in Newton. (we have several groups that carpool from Wichita & McPherson)
