New Braunfels. Tx 78131-1328 Marie Dawson During the week of Feb. 13-17, 1995, the quilt commemorating the New Braunfels Sesquicentennial Celebration will be on display at the Comal County Senior Citizens Center every day. The Center is proud to be included in this celebration and to hang this beautiful and historically significant quilt for the benefit of all the citizens of New Braunfels. The quilting of the art object has been a community function. All quilters and quilt block designers are volunteers. Basically, the quilt is a fund-raiser 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 celebration 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 22, 1995. The first quilt, the one to be hanging 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 Chamber of Commerce. Many volunteer ladies and businesses 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 Celebration 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 throughout the state. Each of the four quilts is different in design, and each is very special. Many people have contributed to the creation of these quilts, and we hope to give them all recognition at some point. Major contributors are Nell Morton, Mary Ann and Hank Thompson, Susan Derkacz, Brenda DeStefano, Betty Worl, Jane Hensley, Bobbie Purdum, Steve Richter, Florence Brownfield, Jeanette Felger, and, of course, Mission Valley Textiles who donated all the fabrics.

Claiborne Pell, a White House visitor over the decades who was among the guests who greeted Kohl. Thursday’s dinner turned out to be a case in point. When Clinton realized that Kohl hadn’t had time to meet with all the members of Congress he’d wanted to see while in Washington, the president diverted all the legislators among the guests into the Blue R,>om for a brief post-dinner schmooze before a blazing fire. “This is the culminauon of a visit where all the pieces come together,” White House Social Secretary Ann Stock said as the last couples drifted off the dance Boor.
