Quilts Shared with Seniors

May 13th marked the special recognition of Hope Lutheran’s graduating seniors.  They were recognized during church services and were presented gifts by the Hope Lutheran Church Women.

Each year a committee from the HLCW makes quilts for the graduates.  Those receiving quilts this year were: Braedon Citterman, Son of Pam Citterman & Randy Citterman

Trent Esping, Son of Tony & Tammy Esping

Jasmine Fischer, Niece of Darwin & Lori Dyce

Laura Knutson, Daughter of Scott & Barb Knutson

Adam Myhre, Son of Eric & Paula Myhre

Tyler Myhre, Son of Wade & Terri Myhre

Duncan Schmig, Son of Nathan & Cherri Schmig

Yan Din Suter (Switzerland), Host Family is Scott & Bree Anderson

Amos Tu (Taiwan), Host is Brenda Swoboda

Riley Yost, Son of Carmen Yost & Ryan Yost

 We had the honor of having two of our foreign exchange students with us this year.  They were given smaller table runners which will travel easily with them as they return home.

Those who helped with the quilt project over this past year include Sandy Tolk, Rita Dovre, Ona Olevson, Hazel Johnson, Arla Boe, Helen Rokeh, Fran Fier, Barb Fodness, and Gayle VanVooren.

The quilt tops are made in the individual homes, Rita Dovre does the embroidery of “Hugs from Hope” on each one and then the ladies gather together to put the quilts together with batting and colorful backs.

We certainly hope our students enjoy these quilts as they head off into the world and return often to their home church, Hope Lutheran.
