The Community Hertiage/Barn Quilt Club “Keep on Quiltin’ On” has been very busy over the last few months. With a club of 17 members, we have designed and painted 5 barn quilts! We are excited to announce that we have received the 4-H Canada Connecting Canadians grant, especially for celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday! We are inviting everyone to come and celebrate Acheivement Day with us at the East-Kent Celebrates 150th event on June 29th in Ridgetown. Things will kick off at 6pm with a parade featuring tractors, antique cars, horses and riders as well as many floats and community partners. There will then be a ceremony and time of celebration at the Ridgetown Fairgrounds. Our club will be part of the ribbon cutting ceremony as we reveal our 2017 community quilt! Join us afterwards for cake and refreshments and then stay for some music and finally the huge fireworks show! If you know of people who are not familiar with 4-H or who are new to Canada or our area (think refugees, new Canadians, visitors from other countries, etc.) please consider bringing them out to this event! Part of our commitment to the grant is that we “connect” with these groups of people, introduce them to 4-H and show evidence of their participation in our event. Thanks in advance for helping us to celebrate Canada’s 150th!!
