historically sig nificant quilt for the benefit of all the citizens of New Braun fels The quilting of the art object has been a community function All quilters and quilt block designers are volunteers Basically the quilt is a fundraiser for the Sesquicentennial plaque which will be placed on the side of the Civic Center The anniversary plaque by Paul Tadlock will depict 150 years of diversified cultural aspects of the settling of New Braunfels It has been traditional to mark each cel ebration with a permanent symbol of historic importance to New Braunfels For example the commemorative symbol for the 125th Celebration is the fachwerk wall which was placed at the entry to Landa Park Quilters are working every Tuesday at the Chamber of Commerce finishing the second quilt which will be raffled the drawing to be held on April The first quilt the one to be hang ing in the Center next week will also be raffled the drawing to be held in January 1996 Tickets are on sale at the Senior Center and at the Cham ber of Commerce Many volunteer ladies and busi nesses are selling tickets also It is important to note that when you purchase raffle tickets the chances are good for the April drawing and for the January drawing In other words you are getting two chances for one to win one of these gorgeous original art works Tickets will continue to be sold all year for the benefit of the Sesquicentennial Cel ebration since activities will be going on all year Two additional quilts are being assembled as museum pieces to be shared and displayed around the area and perhaps in museums
