DKG Meeting on September 16th 2019

September 16: June Cashmere
with Amy Swanson, USA Operations Manager
Amy will take us to Kyrgyzstan in her talk about Kyrgyzstan’s textile history, the recent discovery of highest quality cashmere goats, a peek at shepherd life in Kyrgyzstan, and the strides that June Cashmere founder Sy Belohlavek and his team are making toward the ethical and sustaina- ble production of cashmere in Kyrgyzstan. With the goal of economic development for Kyrgyzstan, Sy is establishing a cashmere processing mill in the capital city of Bishkek. This will allow work with additional shepherds throughout Kyrgyzstan, provide jobs in the city, and hopefully encourage additional investment in the country. Additionally, Amy will share insights about cashmere in general and June Cashmere’s yarn production and quali- ties specifically. . . and if the time change with Kyrgyzstan-Dayton allows, we will call in live to Sy in Kyrgyzstan to allow interactive engagement and questions with Sy directly.
Vendor: June Cashmere

All non-perishable food items collected at Fifth Third Field from tonight through June 2 will be donated to the Foodbank, Inc.

All fans with tickets to any of the six games on the current home stand (May 28-June 2) who are unable to attend the game due to issues related to the weather damage may exchange their ticket to any future Dragons game in 2019 (based on availability).

Will miss them…

Two of our favorite DKG members have died. Elllie Gaines and Mary Hal Davis. Ellie and Mary Hal were at every DKG Retreat that I went to. Both of them have been an inspiration to me as a knitter. Ellie knitted a little sweater and gave me the pattern. Mary Hal taught me how to knit a flower and I went crazy making my own version. Mary Hal always went last at Show and Tell because she always was quite comical. The first time I saw Mary Hal do Show and Tell she had knitted costumes for her husband and herself. They were Adam and Eve costumes, fig leaf and all. Mary Hal could always make us laugh. I will miss Ellie because she was always at our monthly meeting and she was always smartly dressed and quite pleasant. Ellie viewing is tomorrow. Please check the obituaries for place and time.
