Gearing up for their 100th anniversary celebration next spring, friends of French Creek Community School are putting together a special heritage quilt.
While the school and community prepare to host the big weekend celebration May 18-21, 2012, a group is calling on students, parents and staff, past and present to contribute one of 100 quilt squares that will be sewn together into a memory quilt.
Co-organizer Diane Duncan said they are already receiving some completed squares and added there will be three work sessions, slated for November 15 to 17, to help those who need a helping hand in order to finish their squares.
When the pieces are returned by January, along with a few sentences describing the memories, a quilting team will put them together and compile a booklet for all participants.
Drop by the school to pick up the required square and instructions for $5 from the secretary, Rose Ellen Graham or call her at 250-248-9921 for more information.
