Scholarship Quilt Update
The 2013 scholarship quilt is coming together very nicely. Quilters have been busily piecing individual blocks and met on November 5th to sew the blocks into a beautiful quilt top. Plans are in the works for the quilting and finishing. Quilt raffle tickets will be on sale after the first of the year – all proceeds will go directly towards the 2013 scholarships.
All interested high school students are encouraged to submit a design for the West Contra Costa Retired Educators Fund Logo Contest. Information has been sent to high school art and computer teachers. The award winning logo will be used on promotional materials and outreach to potential scholarship applicants.
