Church makes quilts for refugees
Relief efforts in Clintonville for Ukrainians
By Grace Kirchner
St. Martin Lutheran Church displayed 108 hand-made quilts on Sunday, March 27.
The quilts will soon be headed to help the Ukrainian people.
The Quilter’s Group, which meets every Thursday morning at the church, designed and made the quilts.
Rev. Jason Zobel blessed the quilts that will be transported to the Orphan Grain Train warehouse in Westfield.
From there, they will be directed to the relief efforts for the Ukrainian people.
The expense of air cargo and medical supplies will be high. Anyone wanting to make a monetary gift, can send it to Orphan Grain Train treasurer, Marilyn Muller at N1459 Castle Drive,
Medford, WI 54451. The first air cargo load is expected to take place April 12.

The Quilters Group has about a dozen members who meet weekly. They each have a duty that could involve cutting the squares, turning the edges, sewing or tying the quilts.
“It is a nice group of ladies and I go whenever possible,” said Marlys Gast, a long-time member.
