We are so lucky to live in such a great community! When someone needs a hand the volunteers show up and get the job done. Today was a double header! First the Brockville and Area Chernobyl Quilters showed up to deliver the goods … and deliver they did! Here is Mary Bernard and some of the quilters along with the 215 hand-made quilts that they presented for delivery this year.
This brings the 9 year total to 1,446 quilts! These beautiful
Holiday traditions vary greatly around the world, but one thing remains constant and that is taking the time to reflect on the year that has passed and to think about those less fortunate than ourselves.
