Without officers in place, the League can not operate as a 501c and dues can not be collected under the framework of the non-profit status.
If you have already sent in your dues for 2019, and would like a refund, please contact the Treasurer, Karen Casper at (309) 230-0772 or via email at email@example.com.

Wednesday, November 28
11:30 at Christ Anglican Church, Moline, IL
Come join us for an experience in ... paper cutting! Not just kids stuff anymore, papercutting has become an expressive art form. Bring a pair of sharp scissors to cut paper and experience the simple enjoyment of creating paper art! (Hint: the smaller the scissors, the better. Embroidery scissors will work but anything that offers a smaller point at the end is great.)
