Go to The Fair and Vote For Our Quilt!


Fall is here and it's time for the annual quilt contest sponsored by the Greater Jacksonville Fair.  Each year 30 plus elementary schools submit a quilt based on the superintendent's book of the month. This year's selection is "A Cloak for the Dreamer", a story about a tailor and his three sons.   These hard working 4th and 5th grade girls (pictured) hand stitched for hours after school each day to create this beautiful quilt in their own interpretation of the story.  As pictured, they are Morgan, Bryonna, Michaela, Mrs. Woodlief, Kennedy, Rachel, Bailey, Haley and Hannah.  Last years quilt came in 2nd place in the judges vote and 3rd place for the community vote.  When you visit the fair next week, we hope you will take the time to vote for Chaffee Trail's entry. All the quilts will be on display in the (white building) exhibition hall.  The fair starts October 29th and ends November 9th.  Voting ends at 6 pm on Friday, ov. 7th. You can vote everyday so go vote for our quilt!
