Hand-crafted for 2015 Country Fest

Lynn Atkins has been a supporter of Country Fest for years.  He has made numerous wooden items for the auction in the past and this year he is doing the same.

Mr. Atkins used a slab of wood from his property to make this beautiful bench.

Quilts in Progress

The ladies are busy preparing quilts for this years Country Fest.

Lucy has pieced many quilts over the years.



Alice marks the quilts so the quilter has a pattern to follow.



Esther is quilting a quilt that was designed and pieced by her sister Lucy.


20th Annual Country Fest



Even though we had some rain on Saturday, it did not put a “damper” on the day.


“Stars Over Georgetown” (on left) was the highest selling quilt of the day.

Candy Drop '14

We were thankful to be able to have the Ariel Candy Drop in spite of the weather forecast.

Busy Day

The people of Bittinger and Pillar of Life churches and their friends have much to do  today because tomorrow is the Big Day.  Among other things, many pies have been baked in preparation for tomorrow.  We hope to see you there!
