A few days ago I mentioned that this year I will be serving as Chairperson for Community Service for our Quilt Guild. Today my wonderful sister, Nancy, and I met the lady who was in this capacity last year. She has graciously offered to work with us this year, especially in the capacity of CASA for Children quilt coordinator. I have included the Mission Statement and the pledge that volunteers all over the country commit to as they work with these children. These people, in my book, are angels here on earth, for their never ending efforts to spare these children further abuse and neglect. Our Guild contributed nearly 60 quilts for the children on the CASA rolls in our county in 2012, and this was just one of our many community service projects. The guild has also contributed numerous quilts to local nursing homes, neonatal unit of area hospital, as well as contributing blocks for "Home of the Brave". We will continue serving these charities with plans to add even more.
