Date: July 21, 2017
Three quilt collections will be on display. First, antique quilts made by Lisette Aldrich's grandmother. Second, over 50 lap quilts made to give to the campers at Camp to Belong in August 2017. Third, wall hangings made from drawings on fabric done by campers at the 2015 and 2016 Quilt to Belong Camps.
The quilts in the last two collections were made by women in the Community Service Program at Taycheedah Correctional Institution and local quilters. At 7 PM, Kate Bauer, the co-director of the Camp to Belong program will give a presentation. Camp to Belong unites siblings who are separated in foster care. You can visit their website here: http://www.ctb-wi.org/ In addition, Thangles, a local quilting business, will have items for sale with all proceeds going to Camp to Belong.
4/22: The Adopt-a-Highway group will begin cleaning our stretch of highway on April 22, 2017. We meet at our Highway Sign just west of County Road I (west of Fond du Lac) at 8:30 AM. Mike Hayes will have garbage bags and green safety vests for those who wish to help. We clean up Highway 23 from County Road I, west 2 miles, to County Road Y. The average clean up time is about 1 hour; perhaps a little longer on this particular first pick-up of the year.
If the weather is inclement Mike Hayes will email you no later than 7:30 AM. We reschedule for the following week, same time, same place. Mike can only notify those who belong to the clean up group. If you wish to be on the group please let Mike know that via email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We clean up 3 times per season. This year's remaining dates are July 22, and Oct. 21. If you join our group by being on Mike's email list you are not committed to doing anything. You merely be there if you can make it there. Mike hopes to see you some time and... Mother Earth will thank you!
