Collinsville Education Foundation Web Page
Bill Thomas (center) and Jeanie Barnes (right) of the C.E.F. present members of the Patch Work Quilters with a check for their time and materials for creating the quilt for the Education Foundation. Tickets for a chance at the quilt (which will be given away on Founder's Day in September) are $1 each or 6 for $5. The quilt was designed by Loretta Overholt. The individual panels were hand quilted by the Patch Work Quilters that meet at the Collinsville Library. The machine work was done by Donna Joplin at the Quilted Garden in Skiatook.
C.E.F.'s quilt is titled: "Collinsville Education The Center Of It All". The photo above shows the detail in the center portion of the quilt.
Funds raided by the Collinsville Education Foundation are used to provide grants to teachers in the Collinsville Schools for academic projects. Over $45,000 in grants have been provided since the organization started in 1998. The non-profit organization also sells caps, afghans, and ornaments. The group discussed the potential of holding a run or walk this year to raise funds. The group will also continue their annual golf tournament.
