Submitted photo Okanogan's centennial quilt features a log cabin design and was made by volunteers as a fund-raiser for the centennial celebration. Tickets, at $1 apiece, are available from centennial committee members and at Okanogan City Hall. The winner will be drawn on Incorporation Day, Oct. 29.
Quilt is made
Volunteer quilters are sought to help put together a quilt being made as part of the Okanogan centennial celebration.
All the quilt blocks are done, and the quilt top is being put together, according to an announcement from the centennial planning committee. Too many blocks were done and some were smaller than the pattern size, so they'll be used in the binding, according to the announcement.
Volunteers are needed to quilt the piece. More information is available Dorie Wood, 422-3585, or Carolyn Clayton, 422-2925. Quilting times will be set up soon, according to the announcement.
Meanwhile, the float is taking shape and the float committee also needs volunteers. As soon as the basic float is put together, the makers will need artistic people and painters, the announcement said.
The float, sponsored by the Okanogan Kiwanis Club, will depict an early 20th century river boat.
More information is available from Ray Doll, 322-3636, or Okanogan City Hall, 422-3600.
The committee is looking for descendants of early pioneers who came to the area by 1928.
Any descendants who didn't receive a letter is asked to contact city hall or Clayton, the announcement said.
