Hometown Hernando for June 17

Quilters’ guild presents donations: The West Pasco Quilters’ Guild made two recent check presentations. A check for $3,000 was presented to Elaine Smith, New Port Richey parks and recreation director, during the New Port Richey City Council meeting May 3. The proceeds, which were raised at the guild’s biennial 2016 quilt show, will be used for children’s programming at the city’s rec center. Members made and then donated small quilts that were auctioned at the show. The guild also presented Bob Langford of AMI Kids with a check for $4,000. AMI Kids helps children with troubled pasts reach brighter futures. Proceeds to help AMI Kids were raised by selling raffle tickets throughout the year for the 2016 Opportunity Quilt. A quilt is made every year by guild members, with proceeds going to a Pasco charity voted on by the membership. From left are: Alma Tilley, Pat Herrmann, Smith, Peggy Kirchner, Laura Vernola and Janie Franco.
