To the Editor:

I would like to extend the following thanks to everyone who participated in making the 2012 World AIDS Day Community Friendship Quilt.

Thanks to: the Norton House for discounting quilt materials, and for helping to distribute and collect the quilt squares; Susan Manton Haughwout and the town office for helping to distribute the quilt square materials and for offering the space to display the quilt; the local American Legion Post #15 for financing this project; and the quilters, Gail Anderson, Joan Henry, Judy Lafiura, Marcy McElroy, Trudy Mueller, Liz Sistare, and Marilyn Ward for helping me put the quilt together.

Thanks to the 2012 “Material Girls” who made quilt squares: Gail Anderson, Tracey Brown, Bette Crawford, Carolyn Dileo, Jennifer Fizgerald, Alanna Fontanella, Patricia Fountain, Carol Grant, Joan Henry, Ann Herrmann, Cindy Hutcheson, Judy Lafiura, Kathy Larsen, Marcy McElroy, Laraine Morrow, Trudy Mueller, Karen Pratt, Patricia Savage, Liz Sistare, Elaine Timmons, Twyla Wallace, and Marilyn Ward. Karen Pratt made the special heart square in the middle of the quilt.

The quilt will be on display in the Wilmington Town Office window on 2 East Main Street until December 3
