The Healing Garden Quilt—-Made with love and tears in memory of loved ones .The Healing Garden Quilt, made by members and friends of the Waynedale United Methodist Church will be auctioned off by a silent auction during their Fish Fry on Friday, October 18th. If you would like to see the quilt, it is now hanging in the church sanctuary, 2501 Church Street, Waynedale.

The quilt was started in September, 2001 and completed on April 30, 2002. The design in the quilt is from the blossoms and leaves of plants used in chemotherapy drugs. It was made in memory of loved ones who died from cancer or who are survivors of cancer.

The starting bid for the quilt will be $500. The highest price bid will be posted for all to see until 6:30. The person bidding the highest price by 6:30pm on October 18th will receive the quilt. All proceeds received from the sale of the quilt will be given to the American Cancer Society to be used to help find a cure for cancer.

Come and enjoy the dinner, see the quilt and perhaps bid on it. Remember, 100% of what is paid for the quilt, will be used for research.
