Hello out there to all my good friends and neighbors. Nope, I’m not writing the news for the Ermine Center again, yet.

Just want to do a little bragging about one of our good seniors, Mabel Absher of Whitco, and our center.

Mabel pieced by hand 14 quilt tops and we at our center tacked them to send to Salyersville for the tornado victims that lost their homes and their belongings.

Debbie Slone (our wonderful friend) would bring them for us to tack. Geneva Sturgill would take them home with her and hem them. They all turned out beautiful.

We had a little ceremony for Mabel. Debbie brought her to the center and Judge Jim Ward was there to congratulate her and gave her a very nice certificate. Also, he gave Geneva one too.

We really enjoyed tacking the quilts. Hope the people that receive them enjoy them as much as Mabel and we did working on them.

The Judge will be taking them down in August. Mabel had one for the Judge and he was well pleased.

Letcher County Judge/Executive Jim Ward and Mabel Absher display the quilt which she gave to Ward.

Thanks again, Mabel, for thinking of others.

So long for now and God bless until next time.
