Needle And Friends Quilt Guild Supports Liberal’s Fire Department

KSCB News - April 5, 2010 12:00 am

Ginny Anderson representing the Needles & Friend Quilt Guild

contacted the Liberal Fire Department several months ago to let them know that she was proposing a fund

raiser to support the “Fire Pup” program to her quilt group. She proposed a

quilt project with the theme “Fire & Ice” with all proceeds to be donated to

provide printed fire safety materials (books, color sheets, pamphlets, etc.)

to support the Liberal Fire Department’s Fire Safety programs and

initiatives. The quilts are now finished and will be on display at First

National Bank’s main lobby at 1700 N. Lincoln from April 9th through 27th.

The public is encouraged to visit the display and view the quilts, where

they will have the opportunity to vote for their favorites. Already $600

has been donated to the program, according to the National Fire Safety

Council who administers the “Fire Pup” program this provides enough

materials for 200 children.

Liberal Fire Chief Kelly Kirk would like to express his appreciation and the appreciation of the entire

department to Mrs. Anderson and the members of the Needles & Friends Quilt

Guild for their hard work and support of our educational programs. Kirk hopes

that the public will take the opportunity to visit the display and view the

quilts constructed over the past few months.
