Delaware County Cancer Coalition
"Centennial Celebration—100 Years of CCE—Joy of Quilting"
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Delaware County has been working with the Delaware County Cancer Coalition to educate the public on cancer awareness and screening through quilting. This year Cornell Cooperative Extension of Delaware County’s Executive Director, Jeanne Darling, is offering quilters and the public another opportunity to participate in a quilting project to support cancer education and screening.
This year’s County Fair quilt project will encourage quilters and the public to celebrate the “Joy of Quilting.” We would like to display quilt projects this year at the Delaware County that have been especially fun to create and have given you joy in designing and creating a quilt/quilted project. The County Fair this year will feature the Centennial of CCE in Delaware County and Cornell Cooperative Extension Human Ecology Programs—Then and Now.
To participate in “Centennial Celebration—100 Years of CCE—Joy of Quilting” project, each individual or group is asked to complete a wall hanging or mini-quilt by Friday, July 19, 2013. The quilted projects will be displayed at the Delaware County Fair August 12-17, 2013 and may be available for bid. Quilt projects bid money will be donated to Relay for Life. Quilters can also volunteer to do quilting demonstrations at the Delaware County Fair.
