A 36-inch by 58-inch Noah’s Ark quilt will be one of two quilts featured on the Friday, Sept. 22, raffle sponsored by the Auxiliary at HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital in Breese. During the Auxiliary’s June annual meeting, organization members Lisa Gallagher (left) and Joann Timmermann (right), both of Breese, took a few moments to display the quilt which features pastel colors on a white background, Noah with an umbrella, animals, sea life, pink hearts and intricate stitching. Also on the Fall Raffle is a 90-inch by 108-inch modified 16-patch quilt featuring multi-colored patches on an alternating white and beige background and a three-dimensional effect. Tickets for both raffles are available in the Gift Shop at $1 each or six/$5 and both quilts are generally on display across from the Gift Shop near the hospital Information Desk. Tickets will also be available at the Aug. 30 KidneyMobile and the Sept. 13 hospital health fair at the Breese Knights of Columbus Hall. In addition, a silent auction quilt is in the Cafeteria Hallway with bids due by 3 p.m. the second and fourth Tuesdays and quilts are for sale in the Gift Shop. The Gift Shop additionally stocks used books, seasonal and other merchandise and used books, puzzles, DVDs, etc., are for sale in the Cafeteria Hallway from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  the second and fourth Thursdays in July and August except for holidays, hospital and/or Auxiliary events.
