Quiet Valley Quilters
For the second year in a row, members of the Quiet Valley Quilters in Bennington are donating quilts to the victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. They will be sent with a local volunteer workforce from Habitat for Humanity and the Southern Vermont Career Development Center, who will be going to the town of Las Marias to rebuild damaged homes in April. It is hoped that a sister city relationship will be developed as they continue to support this mountain village and its people. The quilts will be given to family members in the homes being rebuilt. The Quiet Valley Quilters normally meet the first Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Second Congregational Church, 115 Hillside Avenue, Bennington. New members are welcome.
