Handmade Quilt to be Auctioned to Benefit the Fort Howard Elementary School Log Cabin

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In the fall of 2012, the Green Bay community came together to support a movement to save the iconic log cabin located outside of Fort Howard Elementary School from demolition. Built in 1975-1976 by teacher Charles Hatfield and the students of Fort Howard, the cabin had succumbed to the elements and was in desperate need of repair. Through generous donations from local businesses and community members, the cabin has been fully restored to its original condition, and a ribbon cutting ceremony will take place this May. To help offset costs of the newly renovated cabin, a handmade 36×36 quilt will be auctioned off on http://www.ebay.com from Thursday, April 4 to Sunday, April 14 at 5:59 p.m. Auction bidding will start at $50.00.

The colorful, handmade quilt has never been used, and was made by community member Clarice Erickson. All of the money generated from the quilt fundraiser will be used to offset costs from the cabin renovation. To view the listing, visit http://www.ebay.com/itm/200912461777, or stop by the District Office Building at 200 S. Broadway St. to see the quilt in the main lobby. Fort Howard Elementary School is located at 520 Dousman Street.
