3.Wee Care Project. Three new quilts were received today and given to Joy Ivy to present to the Hospital. Jonna Burkes indicated that the current labels used on the wee care quilts do not correctly reflect what was originally approved to be on the labels. It appears that they have been changed over the years due to problems with the ink used and then trying to get them to print off the computer.
