Single Parent Scholarship Established

The Nimble Thimble Quilt Guild and Polk County Extension Homemakers Council (EHC) established a scholarship directly with the U of A-Rich Mountain Foundation to enhance educational opportunities for single parents in Polk County. Guild members make a new quilt to raffle at the annual Ouachita Quilt Show.


This is the eleventh quilt show that a quilt raffle has funded single parent scholarships. The 2022 raffle quilt is Bear Paws in the Ouachitas and currently on display at the Polk County Extension office. The drawing for this year's winner will held at the close of the quilt show November 5.


To help us continue the giving tradition, buy raffle tickets from a guild or EHC member. To buy by mail, make checks out to Polk County EHC and send to Polk County EHC raffle, 211 DeQueen Street, Mena, AR 71953. $10 for 20, $5 for 6, or $1 each.


The date to submit quilts for the Ouachita Quilt Show is November 1 from noon to 5:00pm at the fairgrounds.
