Sunny Quilter Club does well at County Fair By LORENZO ALBA, JR. AND JOHNI GANDARA Labor Day is once again upon us and the sunny days keep on shining of us at sunshine Haven. The county fair was a success and even some of our residents enjoyed success at the fair with their quilt displays. The Sunny Quilter Club, Sunshine Haven's own, came out of the Hidalgo County Fair with two blue ribbons and red ribbon. Mathilda Elkins and June Will were both winners of blue ribbons for first place and the club itself won a red ribbon for third place. This is an exciting time for the club and another successful county fair for the club as well. The Sunny Quilters Club' is one of Our succe'ss stories here at Sunshine Haven Nursing Home. Our therapy department facilitates the Sunny Quilters Club and considers is" it to be one of'the best programs we have at Sunshine Haven. The club was developed to improve our patient's quality of life, by improving the resident's fine motor skills, range of motion, hand to eye coordination, socialization, and community integration. This sewing club has been around for almost five years now. We have had as many as ten residents in this club. Currently the partici- pants are: June-Will, Mathilda Elkins, Ruth Candelaria, Patti Shamp, Mercedes Kolb and Conception Denogean. The program's facilita- tors are Johni Gandara and Armi Rodriguez. The club makes various quilts from scrap material that is do- nated to our group from the community and some of the resident's families. They display our quilts around the .facility for family mem- bers, staff, and visitors to enjoy. They also have been part of the Heritage Quilt Show for three years now; furthermore, also submit numerous quilts to the county fair, like the one this year. The club also donates quilts to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness. The last quilt dolated for charity 'iaiscd over $1.,000 for Breast Cancer Research. Let's not forget that some of'their quilts have been displayed in businesses around town There is also the quilt that travels the state with one of our state ombudsman, who tells the story of the Sunny Quilters Club. At Sunshine Haven Nursing Home we are grateful to the staff and the community for supporting our group. It is because of them, we are able to continue to do something special that these residents love and benefit from every week. So congratulations to the Sunny Quilter's Club!
