BOONSBORO - People at Fahrney-Keedy Home & Village were busy holding a Heritage Day celebration - and making two special quilts to benefit the retirement community.
Fahrney-Keedy's second annual Heritage Day celebration was Aug. 19.
Residents, family and visitors enjoyed a chicken barbecue and other foods. Numerous vendors participated, offering a variety of crafts, and specialty and handcrafted items. Entertainment included children's games, and musical performances by Country Gospel Aires, By Faith and the Rohrersville Band.
Proceeds from Heritage Day will benefit the retirement community, administrative assistant Betsy Miller said.
The auxiliary displayed the "Giant Dahlia" quilt it will be auctioning Sept. 9 at 1 p.m.
The quilt, which is 96 inches by 108 inches, was made by Fahrney-Keedy residents, Miller said.
Residents Delores Grossnickle, Edna Pryor and Arminta Reynolds have done much of the work, piecing the quilt and doing the binding, batting and backing, Miller said.
"They did everything as a team," she said
