  • Charity Quilt Money Presented

    Hi everyone,
    Here is a photos of Alan Giagnocavo, president of Fox Chapel Publishing and Publisher of SSW&C (left) presenting a check for $919.75 to Donald Dentler, a member of the Zembo Shrine as well as a Board of Governor's Member for the Shriners Hospitals for Children in Philadelphia, PA. The Philly hospital focuses on spinal cord injuries and is one of the top in the country at repairing those sorts of injuries. The money represents 1/2 the total revenue from the pieces auctioned off in addition to the Charity Quilt.

    Great job everyone!!!!

        Thanks for the picture, Bob. It's nice to know everyone's work (especially yours and Neal's) has been put to such a good purpose.

        Now, if I get myself a funny hat do you think people might give me large checks too?

            I'm also glad I was part of this.
            Kudos to all participants, direct & indirect.

            What we have accomplished is something we can all be proud of, and although I was a little sad that the quilt did not bring in more money, I'm glad it did bring in something at all. Some kid somewhere will benefit from it, and that is what's important.

            Congrats, and I hope to share the pleasure with you again.

              If you wear a funny hat AND grow a beard, I'll send you a check Gill!

              THANKS for the post Bob, makes it all worthwhile!

                Congrats on your pending retirement and gaining a new daughter. I have been retired close to 6 years now and I have no idea where the time went. Yes retirement will mean some adjustment but I can tell you it is the best job I have ever had. By the way. If you think retirement means unlimited shop...

                Norma and I are still growing into our 'new' home but are really happy that we got this work done and everyone who has seen the transformation have been wowed.

                Hi guys - it seems like I am back in business. The offending 'F' key seemed to lack sufficient travel to push down on the main board so I stuck a thin sliver of plastic under it with super glue and that seems to have solved the problem.

                The only downside is I now have no excuses for my...

                WOW! I really like your taste in doors etc. I have have always leaned towards contemporary / modern. But our house is a small cape and that style would not suit it. Since we are both Geminis we have 4 people and our house is very eclectic. Each room has a bit of different style.
