Catherine Whall Smith . . . shares the March Chaplin Bicentennial “Quilt/Home of the Month”

Today I was able to change out the Quilt/Home of the Month at the Chaplin Town Library. Below is the quilt and the information on the signage that hangs with my quilt “Heating Up the Hay”.

Our daughter Tiffany and Christopher Bray attended Chaplin Elementary school (now the Chaplin Town Library/Senior Center) and went on to graduate from our new elementary school on Palmer Road. Chris’s mother, was always there to support any and all Chaplin Elementary School PTO fund raising activities.  Plant Sale, Spaghetti Dinner, Classroom Basket Raffle, etc. she was there to help in any way possible. She took over the head position to obtain and distribute food to the volunteers who participated in building the very first play scape at the town’s newly built school.  The installation took all day on a Saturday and we all were so excited to see the smiling faces on the school children when they arrived by bus on Monday morning.

NOTE: Several years ago, there was a major renovation on this home. Thus the new exterior color palette, as shown in the 12 x 12 mounted piece. Previously it was a white with green shuttered house like the earlier look of the houses in the Chaplin Village.  This past year to keep the front area tidy, several goats were brought in to graze to “their hearts content”.  From our side porch we spent several hours enjoying the site of the munching goats! ! !
