HAWLEY- Mary Anne Teeter is this year’s winner of the Wallenpaupack Historical Society 2013 quilt raffle. The winning ticket was drawn at their November meeting by Audrey Graybill, Past President of the Society, from more than 1200 tickets. Quilt Chairman Dick Briden noted that Mrs. Teeter is a member of the Society. The quilt was presented to Mrs. Teeter on November 27 at the Hawley Library, where Mrs. Teeter is a board member.
Briden mentioned that the Society is grateful to the organizations which provide a venue where quilt tickets are sold. These include the Lake Region IGA, the Audubon Show, the Wallenpaupack High School Antique Show, the Hawley Hoedown, Wally Lake Fest, and the Dorflinger Antique Show.
The local ‘Friends with a Heart’ quilting group annually creates and donates a one-of-a -kind quilt for the Society for their use as a fundraiser. The ‘Friends’ have already begun work on next year’s quilt which will commemorate the 200th anniversary of Pike County.
