Opportunity blocks is another fun voluntary activity we do in the guild. The chair person picks a block to make every other month that is alternated with the Friendship Blocks. All members are eligible to participate and can make as many of these blocks as they like. Their name goes into a basket for each block that is made and a drawing is held. The winner takes home all the blocks to make whatever they like with them. Click here to see past opportunity blocks.
