It was wonderful having new members at our April meeting! We are working on clarifying our mission statement and how individual members can make the best use of their time. Thank-you, Lisa for hosting!
Please come to our next Autism Center Guild member meeting on Thursday evening, May 5 at the home of Lonnie and Patty Pacelli in downtown Bellevue. E-mail Patty at email@example.com for address and directions. Board meeting will be at 6:00 and general member meeting will be at 7:00. (Note: Flashman Guild members do not need to attend)
We hope to see you there and want to hear your ideas, too! We hope to continue our supportive autism community, while raising funds for Seattle Children's and the Autism Center. We need your help and input! For more information, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

- 11:30 - 1:30 p.m. - Enjoy the meeting and luncheon with hundreds of other Seattle Children's guild members.
Please register online at this link. Note that you are with the autism guild so we can sit together.
One of our goals is to support the hard-working Autism Center Staff, so in March, the guild provided sandwiches, salads and other snacks throughout the day to make their "blitz" week of extra-long hours devoted to powering through the diagnosis waiting list. Thank-you especially to Susan Steckler and Lisa Iland Hilbert for your dedicated hard work in providing food and support!
