To the editor:
The Copper Country Humane Society would like to thank all of the quilters and quilt enthusiasts who made this year's Strawberry Festival Quilt Show such a successful benefit for the animals.
This was the eighth consecutive year for the show, which is put on by the Portage Quilt House, the Portage Quilters quilting group, Superior Stitchers quilting guild and other local quilters.Nearly 300 adults viewed this year's exhibits which included more than 100 examples of traditional, contemporary and art quilts.
Viewer's Choice honors went to Beegu Keranen for Copper Country Birds, Helen Wills for All Roads Lead to the Sea and Fran Ricci for Sew Many Points.
The CCHS will apply the show's proceeds to continue our spay and neuter efforts and to provide shelter and medical care for the nearly 900 dogs and cats that pass through our shelter's doors each year.
In addition to thanking the quilters for their tremendous investment of time to produce the show, we would like to thank each person who attended, the many hardworking volunteers who assisted with setup, staffing, and takedown, Holy Trinity Lutheran Church of Chassell for providing space for the show and Superior Rent-All and Sales for their great equipment rental rates.
Thank you all for giving of yourselves to assist our community's homeless pets.
