Local quilters from Rice’s Hotel/Hughlett’s Tavern Quilters Guild received the Jeanne Rose Award last week. Wonda Allain and Alexis Forrester received special recognition from president Ellen Hollows of Tavern Quilt Guild in Heathsville. “This award is given to people who volunteer their time,” said Hollows. “They never throw their hands up in the air. They’re always going above and beyond the call of duty.”
Allain has been a contributing participant with the guild for quite some time and has served as vice president, organizing and directing quilt camps, fundraisers and activities.
Forrester was recognized for her direct involvement and special leadership in connection with education in the community. Her efforts to encourage young people to take up quilting at the elementary and high school levels as well as the Girls Empowerment Organization have been productive.
