Special Events Quilt

A beautiful quilt was donated to our 2017 Special Events Campaign by the Stitch on Quilting Guild of Prairie du Rocher this past spring and quilt drawing tickets were sold during our Les Amis events and the Fort’s special events throughout the year. At the close of the recent Winter Rendezvous, a winner’s name was drawn and we happily announce Jeff Weber as the winner. We thank Jeff and all those that bought drawing tickets this past year, and we especially thank the ladies of the Stitch on Quilting Guild for this lovely quilt. We appreciate this wonderful way to support the Les Amis du Fort de Chartres 2017 Special Events Giving Campaign. Merci!
