(Lander, Wyo.) – On Thursday, Oct. 24, Betsy Thurlo of the Popo Agie Quilters presented the Lander Senior Center with a check for $1,725 to be put toward the center’s purchase of a new van.
The center’s Jane Nolde accepted the check during lunch in front of a full house. Nolde said the new van has been ordered and is on its way. She had hoped to have the van arrive by the end of the month, but the federal shutdown delayed some of the process, she said.
The money donated by the Quilters was from the quilt raffle held during the group’s annual show in September.
