April 2008

One of our students from the LIFTS program, Lexie, had entered her 2006 lap quilt project in the 2007 Washington County Fair. She received a number of honors for her work, including a blue ribbon from the fair, a green special award ribbin from the 4H program, and a monetary gift sponsored by a local business!

Lexie has been by recently to continue her work on her 2007 quilt which she plans to submit to the fair this year.

Congratulations & good luck to Lexie!
