Members of the Quilts ‘N Things Quilt Guild traveled to Charleston in December to tour the new Ronald McDonald House recently built along the Elk River.
The facility has 14 guest rooms and a third floor not yet completed. Two of these rooms are handicapped accessible. There are three of these homes in West Virginia, Charleston, Huntington and Morgantown. Over the mantle in the living room is a map made from wood from the old house. In the playroom are two tables make from trees which came from Ritter Park.
The guild presented the organization with 21 baby or youth quilts to be given to children being treated at local hospitals.
After the tour of the Ronald McDonald House the group stopped at the Fireside Grill in Hurricane for lunch and then on to Quits By Phyllis Fabric Shop in Hurricane where they shopped for more fabric, etc. to continued their many individual and club projects. They also visited a little gift shop called Oodles.

Bumgarner, Jamie Knapp, Lucy Cullen, Jane Coles, Daleanna Langford, Liz Rickard. Connie Huston joined the group in Charleston for the rest of the activities.
