Mark Your Calendars

This is the Place Heritage Park News

Jodi Warner has graciously agreed to let us hang her quilts for the month of March at This is the Place Heritage Park.  The park celebrates during the month the history of women in serving in the Relief Society of the LDS Church.  Last year there were about 3,000 women that came and saw the quilts, the park has a docent in costume that tells about the quilts.  The only time the park is open in March is for these celebrations.  But Jodi has agreed to give a lecture about her quilts for those who are interested at a time when everyone can come to see the exhibit. This will be March 10th at 1:00pm.  It will be free and open to the public.  Please come and enjoy some of these beautiful quilts and visit with Jodi.


We need help with volunteers during the birthday celebration.  If you can help please contact Lisa Wegener at http://www.wegener123@q.com
