Service Report: 2006 - 2007

The 2006–2007 Charity Work Day was March 10, 2007. What a busy and fun day! We made over 100 quilts! Thank you to all the participants, and special thanks to The City Quilter for donating the batting for all of the quilts that were put together. Here are a few pictures of some of our many enthusiastic participants.
