Quilters Against Kids Homelessness will resume their community quilt-ins at the auditorium in July and August. EVERYONE interested in aiding Brevard's homeless children are welcome to assist... not all of the jobs require sewing.
Click on the video below for the August quilt-in. Though the woman at the beginning is identified as Sheryl Milner, QAKH's coordinator, it is actually Margie Engel. Margie will quickly tell you that Sheryl is much better looking, and younger too! The real treat is seeing Lydia Howald, one of our senior campers.
