    Quilting is a fun way to express yourself. Using your mind and hands to bring works of art to life can be very rewarding. And also working both your mind, and your hands can have a very positive affect, especially for seniors! The Beacon center quilting class has quite the following, with regular participants showing up every week to work on their next great project.

    Carol Madoxx has been the quilting instructor for over 20 years. Carol says “you begin a project and feel it is fun then finish it. Then you start a new project and it’s even more fun than the last!”

    Let’s join the Quilting Class!

  • About Valentine’s Day


    There are a number of Saints called Valentine who are honored on February 14. The day became associated with romantic love in the Middle Ages in England. This may have followed on from the Pagan fertility festivals that were held all over Europe as the winter came to an end. Traditionally, lovers exchanged hand written notes. Commercial cards became available in the mid nineteenth century.

    What do people do?

    It is a festival of romantic love and many people give cards, letters, flowers or presents to their spouse or partner. They may also arrange a romantic meal in a restaurant or night in a hotel. Common symbols of Valentine's Day are hearts, red roses and Cupid.
