Quilt exhibit a success
October 19, 2023
An exhibit of quilts created by local quilters, the River City Strippers, were on display on Friday at the River Mile 38 taproom. The group makes 100 patriotic quilts a year to give to veterans who participate in Honor Flights, an organization that celebrates servicemen with trips to Washington D.C. River City Strippers received more than $500 in donations at the exhibit, and one member, Esther Roche, was ecstatic. She wanted to express gratitude from the group. "Thank you for all the generous donations," she said. "It was amazing. We appreciate the donations because we get to go buy more fabric!" Photo by Diana Zimmerman.
