 The Quilters meet Monday at 10:00 a.m. to continue their beautiful ministry.  Just last week our quilters received a very nice thank you note.  The person wrote, "I was so nervous about my 1st round of chemo and being presented with this quilt helped remind me of how much support and love I have surrounding me."  Come out and help us continue making these comforting quilts.  Bring a covered dish for the noon lunch break!
