Arts Council makes $500 donation to Ag Society

The Adams County Arts Council recently presented a check for $500 to Liz Lafferty, President of the Adams County Agricultural Society for the commission of the “Corn and Beans” pattern quilt square that is in memory of Maxine Groves and in honor of Donna Sue Groves.

This quilt square will hang on the West End of the renovated grandstand at the Adams County Fairgrounds. In 2001, Donna Sue Groves wanted to do something to honor her mother’s love and appreciation for quilts. Donna Sue Groves and the Adams County Arts Council created the Appalachian Quilt Square Trail and this movement is now present in over 45 states and several countries.

The quilt square pattern was chosen by Liz Lafferty to represent Agriculture in Adams County. John Stadtmiller at http://www.laurelbarnquilts.com/ is the artist that creates these beautiful quilt squares.

Pictured as the $500 check was donated are, Front row from left, Gary McClellan, Betsy Miskell, President, Adams County Arts Council, Paulette Roberts, Treasurer, Adams County Arts Council, and Liz Lafferty: Back row from left, Mike Roberts, Vice-President, Adams Copunty Arts Council, Ken Armstrong, and Neil DeAtley.
