Columbia Basin, WA – Prayer Quilt
Apr 1 – Oct 1 all-day

Help create a prayer quilt.

If you love to craft great you can put the quilt block together yourself or you can send the material and a copy of your favorite scripture.

If you would like to create the block yourself please send in or hand deliver a  9 patch (unfinshed block size: 17″) and with your favorite scripture either written (using fabric ink works best), or embroidery on the block or you can send a copy of the scripture and I will add it to a square.

When doing the quilt block please have the block in the following Color scheme:

Red, White & Blue

Once the quilt is completed I will take a vote on either finding a  family and add a basket to the quilt and hand out at Christmas time or we donate the quilt to a worthy cause for an auction to help raise money.

 

When you either hand me or mail the block please make sure to include your membership number so I can make sure you get the credit.

Wylie Chapter participated in this parade last year and won first prize!!  It would be so exciting if more of us could participate and bring home the win again this year.

I am looking into a place for overnight stay and will update with that info as i get it.  As of now I am told that Lake Ray Roberts has an equestrian campsite and is only about 30 minutes away.  Again, I am not totally 100% on this.

**MAKE NOTE**   WHEN I CALLED TO CHECK ON EXACTLY WHERE WE WERE TO PARK, THE LADY I SPOKE TO GAVE ME THE ADDRESS TO THE FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF DENTON.  HOWEVER….WE ARE NOT TO PARK ON THE ROAD THE CHURCH IS FACING BUT ON THE ROAD BEHIND IT WHICH IS “BRYAN STREET’.  THIS ROAD SITS BETWEEN THE BACK OF THE CHURCH AND A BASEBALL FIELD.  Sorry for any confusion this may cause.

Cowgirls come out and bring your horses swimming in the beautiful Chattooga River, in South Carolina. You can either do day parking at Whetstone area or you can camp the weekend at Whetstone Horse Camp.  We will meet at Day parking across the dirt road from camp ground at 9:30am.
Bring your bathing suit, change of clothes, water shoes or tennis shoes, towels, a sheet to lay your saddle & gear on. Also bring horse treats, snacks, lunch & plenty of your favorite drinks. We’ll ride out on the River trail to Earls Ford River Crossing and beach area to spend the day in the river, swimming, laughing, and having fun with our horses.

***If cowgirls want to come over and camp. Go to Recreation.gov,
select Whetstone Horse Camp, Mountain Rest, SC and book a site.
This is a beautiful semi-primitive camp ground. NO electric, showers, or bath houses only vault toilets on site. Generators allowed, quiet time I think is 11pm.
There are water hydrants spread out about every 3 to 4 sites. Bring plenty of garden hoses & splitters, you cannot keep hose connected constantly to hydrants, but everyone usually attaches hoses to splitters and connects for a while as needed. Sites either have hitching posts, or places to high-line. you can use panels or make temp solar electric paddocks.
