Thanks from Quilt Drive


I would like to thank all the people who worked so hard and contributed so much to make the Project Linus Quilt Drive such a huge success. It was our fifth and best year. We collected more than 140 quilts for deserving children.

Congratulations to Betty Sue Ratter on winning the gift basket for contributing quilt number 100, and congratulations to Shirley Griffith who was the winner of the quilt raffle. We hope you enjoy your new quilt.

Again, thank you to all the wonderfully generous people. It is a privilege to be a part of such a caring community.
