$1000 Pay Down for UCFD Fire Truck

Mary Hubley, is a resident of Broad Cove, member of the Young at Heart Senior Club, and Quilting Instructor for years 2010 to 2012.

Mary Hubley presents Fire Chief Wayne Smith with $1000

Mary provided leadership, and direction, for the YAH Quilting Group. The group, collectively, created a yo/yo quilt consisting of hand sewn, 2,500 pieces, to build a queen size bed spread, complete with two small pillows as accessories.

The YAH quilting group raised $1,000.00 with the purchase of this quilt, and unanimously voted to dedicate the funds generated, to the pay down of the new fire truck loan. The accompanying photo is of Mary Hubley, presenting Wayne Smith, Fire Chief for the UCFD funds raised.

PS: UCFD has less that $25,000.00 left on the fire truck loan—all achieved with the work of many, many generous volunteer hours!
