June Happenings

 The GCQ guild presented a quilt to Paula Atcitty.  She lost her home, vehicles, family dogs and ATV's to a fire recently.  Paula is a local gal, graduating from San Juan High and is now a dialysis nurse at the Blue Mountain Hospital.  We were glad so glad that we could give her a little "comfort" during this tragic time!

The guild met at the county library June 15th.  DeAnn Ivins was the presenter and did a super demonstration on making rag quilts.  She does this on a regular basis at the Bluff Fort.  It was very interesting and looked like a lot of fun to do.
