The weather is gray, let’s be sunny!

Each day I read the “Tell Me Something Good” submissions and realize there is a lot of positive stuff going on in our community.  Here is another entry to get you into the weekend!

“My name is Courtney McCullough,7th grade, and the youth chair for the 4-H State Fashion Revue service project, Quilts for Injured soldiers.Our 4H-ers all over the state were asked to help sew. At the end of the year, all completed quilts, made to fit gurneys and hospital beds, will be given to injured soldiers to give them comfort and thanks. I received a grant for $1000 from the national program, Revolution of Responsibility, using it to pay for the high cost of quilting and binding the unfinished tops and worked the See’s candy booth and made presentations to the county council and clubs to solicit donations. I have attended State committee meetings,given updates, and spread the word when I can. I set up a quilting Bee display at state fair sharing this project. I am doing another this July. April 28th, countywide Fashion Show, there will be a table where others can sew a quilt square.I really enjoyed doing this and hope for 60 completed quilts. ”  For more information, you an email teacherc2@yahoo.com
