Giving Back

Each holiday season, ARTAA members create a small quilt for the residents of the assisted living facility where we meet [as a gesture of our appreciation for their year-long hospitality].  This year's assortment of traditional quilts was recently passed on to management.  While we don't get to meet the lucky recipients, we are always pleased to know that these small tokens warm the hearts and laps of others.  And as always, we never fail to display our individuality!!
