Eleven middle schoolers signed up for a quilting club session, offered through Park Rapids Community Education and led by members of the Crazy Quilters club. This was the third year the program was offered to fourth and fifth graders. Crazy Quilters assembled kits with donated 5-inch fabric squares and volunteered their time.
