Quite A Special Quilt Show Coming in June!


We are delighted to announce that our wonderful long-time supporter and active 93-year old member Mr. Bob Zimmer and his family are working in cooperation with the Beavercreek Historical Society to bring Quite a Special Quilt Show to the Tobias-Zimmer Barn located at Wartinger Park  for a public display in June. On display will be Bob's personal handmade collection which as many of you who have seen his work in the past recognize as top quality. This will likely be the first and final time for a showing of his quilts in one place, as when the public show is complete, Bob will be privately presenting the quilts individually to his family members. The BHS will have the cabins open for tours at the same time. Proceeds will help support Beavercreek Historical Society projects. So mark your calendars now.   You won't want to miss this!
