 Spotlight Saturday November 8th -- Honoring Our Veterans 

Mark your calendars for November 8th from 10am-4pm as we remember and honor our local heroes.

**The Museum will supply items to decorate the quilt squares, but to personalize your square you may bring items from home such as photographs, notes, drawings, embroidery, fabric, small objects, photo film negatives, or whatever you can attach to an 8in. x 8in. canvas square—but you will need to limit the weight of the piece to 1 pound or less. Glitter may not be brought.
