Auction Quilt - Report on Ovarian Cycle Fundraiser

Last winter Mrs. Wright's 4th grade class from the Children's School paid us a visit and selected yarn for their afghan project. Each student knit a square and Mrs. Wright put the quilt together and knitted the border. Last year the quilt brought $1,000 at auction but this year it brought a whopping $2,600 for their scholarship fund. Here's to a job well done and we are already looking forward to next year.
Now for our report on the ovarian cycle fundraiser. On May 3rd we had 15 vendors set up outside the shop on the sidewalk and sell some of their beautiful hand made items. There was everything from sterling silver to glass to knit and crochet items and more. We also had a bake sale and a raffle. All of these events combined brought in $1,700.00 for cancer research. Thank you to everyone who contributed by selling, purchasing, baking or buying tickets. We will try to do this again next year and have an even bigger turnout. It's part of our community service projects and a very worthy cause.
