2014-2015 Library Raffle Quilt

2014-2015 Library Raffle Quilt.jpgMany thanks to Westside Quilters Guild members for their generous donation of this colorful quilt for the Library to raffle as a fundraiser.  Tickets are now on sale and will be sold throughout the coming year until the winning ticket is drawn at the annual Elephant Garlic Festival in August.  Each ticket is $1, or 6 tickets will be issued for $5.  This beautiful quilt utilizes a non-traditional pinwheel design.  Rather than incorporating traditional half-square triangles, each of the four arms of every pinwheel in this quilt is in the shape of a trapezoid.  Each block features a different, brightly colored pinwheel on a white patterned background, and the entire piece is machine-quilted.  It measures six feet square.  Half of the backing is in a Kelly green pattern, while the other half is a floral print; a row of pinwheels has been included down the middle of the reverse side.  This quilt will be continuously on display in the Library for the next eight months.

Fog = Stagnant Air

Please Do Not Burn on Stagnant Air Days

Council is encouraging less wood burning on days when air quality may be harmful to human health.   In addition to presenting a health hazard to persons with respiratory issues, exceeding federal standards could limit economic development in our area.  

Reducing wood burning on few days each year can prevent Washington County from exceeding federal standards.  A County-wide task force is working to address the issue, and encouraging voluntary actions by persons who burn wood in stoves without emission equipment or engage in outdoor burning.  (If your have emission control equipment on your stove, burning is not a problem.)

Please sign up for air quality alerts at http://www.wccca.com/PublicAlerts   

Residents can drop off wood and yard debris at Nature's Needs/Recology at no cost year around.  You only need to present your ID to prove residency.  

This is a link to the report presented to the Council.
