Burton Gregory – Horizon Lodge resident
The board of directors of the Horizon Lodge is hosting an Open House at the Lodge on Jan. 31, from 2-4 p.m.
The purpose of this public event is to show changes that have taken place over the past year.
Due to a generous donation from Burton Gregory, a resident at the Lodge, a sizable redecorating project has been finished.
The theme of this year’s quilt is “Wish Upon a Star”.
Each block contains a star of different design which has been created with love in honor of friends, relatives, or all women battling breast cancer.
The quilt was sewn together by Cheryl Aklestad of Shelby, quilted by Lorrie Siebrecht of Coulee Quilts and Crafts in Cut Bank and the binding was sewn on by Rona Matheson of Conrad.
