Quilting for the Community
The Great Bend Pilot club for over 14 years has used our time and talents to quilt for the foster kids programs in our community.
This is year is no different, we send a warm embrace to the foster kids in our community that need that little bit more in comfort and security that a quilt of their own can bring.
A special Thank you to Betty Schneider she gathers our club together on this project. As the leader of this project without her time and talent we would be lost.
