Women's Civic Club Ties One On For MCC

Posted 1/21/2014

By Jackie Nelson

The ladies of the Hesston Women’s Civic Club hosted an unusual meeting on Monday, Jan. 13.

Rather than the traditional program, the ladies participated in a comforter-tying event to benefit Mennonite Central Committee (MCC).

“This was just a part of our meeting. I was something I dreamed up.  When Janet [Zook} and I decided to be co-leaders, I laid in bed all night thinking, “What can we do?” said Janice Arnold, a member of the Women’s Civic Club since 1990.  .

Arnold went to MCC and found quilt tops were available for organizations interested in tying comforters.

“We had three tops we got from the MCC Relief Center.  We had four ladies around each one.  One of the comforters already had a bottom. But you have to get the batting and the bottom.  On Thursday morning, Pat Moore and Ruth Vogt helped me put them in frames – they are Dorcus Circle members,” she said.

Zook, a Civic Club member since 2006, said the change of pace was well received by the ladies.
