July and August were busy months for some of our guild members.
The Community Service Committee made two donations on July 20. Celia Riggle and Rose Marie Smith delivered 7 quilts to Lifeline Pregnancy Center and 10 quilts to Victim Support Services.

Thank you to the guild members who donated their time and talents in making a charity quilt, and thank you to Celia and Rose Marie who made the delivery possible.
On August 1, Shelly Pagliai gave a wonderful program at the Macon Historical Society. The well-attended event was thoroughly enjoyed by folks from all over. Shelly’s presentation highlighted the quilts and events from her new book, “A Simple Life“, based on her mother’s diary and life in the Macon and Bevier, Missouri areas in the 1950’s. Shelly shared lots of quilts from the book, along with the quilt that was featured in The Kansas City Star block-of-the-month program.
A group from the HOF guild traveled to Macon to hear her lecture. We are so proud of her and all that she has accomplished. Congratulations on your new book, “A Simple Life”.
