Merry, Merry Holidays!

Happy Holidays! We hope all of you are staying safe and enjoying the holidays. The good news is that there is light at the end of the COVID tunnel and hopefully, by next summer, we will be able to resume our “normal” activities. 

Because of COVID, AKS has a “new” normal. Out of necessity, we learned Zoom and how to connect virtually. Our Virtual Gathering was a great success. We now want to build on that and keep the momentum going! We are planning another, smaller virtual event for March 20-21 and you are all invited! Happily, we received contributions during the last event that will allow us to update the AKS website and to use the very latest technology. That said, we need members to volunteer! We hope you will get involved and help!

Warm wishes and happiness in the New Year!

AKS Needs Your Help!

AKS is a volunteer organization and we rely on members to contribute their time and talent. And, it’s fun to interact with other volunteers to make AKS the premier braiding organization. As an AKS volunteer, you do get some advantages — you’ll learn more about braiding and you’ll be the first to know about upcoming classes and events! 

We are looking for —
Members to serve on Virtual Gathering Tech Team
Members with graphic design and art expertise to assist with website renovation
And a Member who can help manage website content to help with timely updates
