Local business and community organizations helped with a SHARP Kids summer program, resulting in a fundraiser and in learning about quilting.

KISSed Quilts, Eagles Auxiliary, and members from the Coulee Creators all collaborated with fabric and hands-on assistance with learning how to sew during the SHARP Kids summer program for girls in fifth through eighth grades, under the direction of group leader Susan Duclos.

A community project resulted, which produced a Lake Roosevelt Raider quilt that the girls have named "Lady Raiders Rise as One." It will be given to the Lake Roosevelt School District. Each girl was also allowed to pick out fabrics at KISSed Quilts for a personal pillowcase that they made during the program.

An additional quilt, as an example of what can be done to show some school pride, is also being donated by KISSed Quilts and Linda Roberts, who collaborated on the idea. Raffle tickets for this quilt will be sold to raise funds for Lake Roosevelt Athletics. Commission requests can be made, or supplies for these quilts are available, at KISSed Quilts, 301 Main Street, Grand Coulee.

The raffle tickets can be purchased at the Lake Roosevelt open house Aug. 31.
