In light of the COVID-19 Pandemic, April and May 2021 events have been edited to include only virtual gatherings.  You should probably assume that  in-person gatherings listed for after June 2021 may NOT be happening, but it may be worth a call or email, as weather may permit outdoor gatherings.    

We hope to be able to display more VIRTUAL events and hook-ins  for these COVID times.  If you have a group with at least one GMRHG member,  that would welcome other guild members as visitors to your local ZOOM gatherings, please let us know!

The Guild Board  has scheduled a few virtual workshops for  late fall/winter  2021-22.  See Guild Events page.
