7. Snuggle up with this Quilt

This is not your ordinary quilt! This quilt has been hand designed and quilted by the hands of a special group of ladies. Master Quilter Ruby Maschke has pieced together this 88" x 98" one of a kind masterpiece. Then the New Knoxville United Methodist Sewing Group quilted the quilt under the direction of Helen Settlage. These busy quilters meet every other Monday to sew and knit many projects for various missions across our area.

As a recent community beautification project, the NB-NK Rotary club tackled a painting project in a graffiti-covered tunnel along the Miami-Erie Canal path.  Fifteen Rotarians and three family members worked together to repaint the tunnel and eliminate the graffiti.  Great job everyone!
