January 1, 2019 - AND THE QUILT WINNER I... Pat Benson from Marquette, NE! Pat purchased 5 tickets for the quilt and was thrilled that she won it. The drawing was held on Sunday, December 16. Six people witnessed the drawing and the winning ticket was drawn out by Morgan Wohl.
An interesting side note: Pat’s great grandfather was Traugott Haessler who was a circuit rider pastor in the 1870s and preached on occasion at the meetings of Christians in this area. In 1872, a permanent call was issued to him by the congregation of St. John, Kramer. His name was the first signed on our congregation’s initial constitution in July, 1874.
Thank you to everyone who helped support this project by buying tickets or actually working on the quilt. After expenses are paid the money will be used to purchase supplies as needed for the quilts we send to Orphan Grain Train.
