The Ridgway Rotary is introducing its first annual Quilting Bee fundraiser and local wilderness-themed quilt to be completed by residents.
Local residents are invited to join in on the fun and help construct a block of the quilt, which will be raffled off at the Rotary's annual Quilt Show on Oct. 15 at the Udarbe Complex.
"One of our fundraising projects for this year is to begin the annual Quilting Bee," said Rotarian Linda Assalone Holtz. "All of the profits from raffling the quilt will go right back to the town.
"The concept is to design a quilt and let the residents help make it."
