Celebrate Christmas in July

The Palermo Community Library will hold its annual meeting Sunday, July 11, at 2 p.m. The trustees will formally receive and hang a quilt donated by Joan Robertson. The quilt showcases Christmas-themed crayon drawings done last November by students from the Palermo Consolidated School and several local homeschool students. The drawings were pressed into the fabric to transfer the pigments, then sewn together by Joan Robertson. The piece was finished off with machine quilting by Diane Dixon.
