Just for fun, pumpkins sport masks made by the Central Kansas Thread Benders.

The Central Kansas Thread Benders Quilt Guild put their hearts and hands to work during the past few months, resulting in a donation of nearly 200 cloth masks to students in USD 428. 

“We are grateful for the work of this generous group of women,” said Andrea Bauer, USD 428 public information director. “The masks they’ve created are not only beautiful, but they created a variety of sizes, fitting students all the way from preschool to 12th grade.” 

Members of the group include Margaret Evers, Mary Ann June, Judy Burnette, Linda Shull, Earlene Arnold, Diane Deines, and Sharon King.
