Each quilt displayed has a unique story to tell. The quilt
pictured was made on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South
Dakota. It was won in a basketball tournament by Terry Middletent, from
the Lower Brule Reservation. When Pastor Barbara Stroud-Borth left
her seminary internship on the Lower Brule Lakota Reservation, Terry
and his wife, Mary Jane, gave it to her to honor and thank her for
the year she lived and worked with the people of Lower Brule.
A committee of volunteers is putting on the quilt show to help
raise money for the courthouse restoration. Any and all donations
are greatly appreciated.
