We would like to give a BIG thank you to the Quilting Ladies. They were able to purchase an ice machine for the Parsons Center and an air conditioner for the kitchen. They are now selling chances on a beautiful hot pink dahlia quilt. The chances are $1 each or 6 for $5. If you would like to purchase chances you may contact any of the Quilting Ladies or you may purchase them at the Parsons Senior Center.
The participants at the Parsons Senior Center would also like to send a BIG thank you to Mountain Valley Bank for providing ice cream for dessert on July 27th because July was National Ice Cream month.
