2024 grad.seniors.jpg

Graduating seniors picked out their quilts made lovingly by the Cross of Christ Quilt Club. This tradition has existed for many years. Perhaps some of the parents remember getting their quilt. 

The Quilt Club makes well over a hundred quilts each year and gives them to graduating seniors, sells some and gives the majority to Lutheran World Relief.
