For Marylou Brower it has been a labor of love, years in the making.
Brower, with some help from fellow quilter Shirley King, recently completed a handmade quilt that she has worked on over the course of the last few years, and has generously donated her work of art to the St. Francis Commons Resident Council.
Brower is a member of the Sugar Shack Girls Quilting Club, which meets every Tuesday in Martville and has been making quilts for more than 30 years.
The council in turn will be holding a raffle for the king-sized quilt, running now through July 24.
Raffle tickets for a chance to win the stunning quilt are available from the St. Francis Commons receptionist. Tickets are a dollar a chance or six for $5.
St. Francis Commons Assisted Living Residence is a part of The St. Luke Family of Caring, an affiliation of community-based, not-for-profit healthcare providers serving the greater-Oswego County area.
Located on the St. Luke healthcare campus in the City of Oswego, St. Francis Commons provides supportive housing and home care services in a comfortable, single-story residence accommodating 60 individuals in fully equipped private or shared-private rooms.
