The 14th Annual Cedar Valley Hospice Quilt-a-thon was held Saturday, March 23, at the Dike Legion Hall and was organized by Darlene Koobs, Laurie McCallum, Bonnie Henze and many volunteers.
"Every quilter is here because they want to be," said Rhonda Hein, volunteer coordinator for Cedar Valley Hospice. "It gives them so much joy knowing that something they love to do is helping the patients and families of Cedar Valley Hospice."
Over 100 quilts were made at the quilt-a-thon and donated to Cedar Valley Hospice for distribution to CVH patients and families throughout Grundy and Tama counties.
Over 45 quilters participated in the 14th Annual Cedar Valley Hospice Quilt-a-thon. Pictured (L to R): Laurie McCallum, Cedar Falls; Darlene Koobs, Dike; Bonnie Henze, Grundy Center.
