2017 Community Service Committee
Donna C. & Sherry R. & Sharon D.
2017- This year we are recognizing the many years of work and families that have been assisted out of poverty by Lydia Place. We are making quilts in several patterns from strips cut to 2 1/2″, joined in strip sets and cut into blocks. In March 2017 we worked from kits that had been put together for us. We sewed, pressed and created those strip sets. Some even got blocks cut. There is much work to be done, though, and we will work together again at our May meeting and many members will take the quilt tops home to sandwich, quilt, and bind.
In 2016 we made flannel receiving blankets for newborns. We completed 30 blankets and 120 burp cloths at our March meeting in support of the Welcome Baby program through St Joseph’s Hospital. Well done Moonlighters!
