LUDLOW, Vt. – Black River Middle and High School students, alumni, staff, and parents have made nine great-for-the-couch log cabin quilts. Proceeds from a raffle of the quilts go to the Black River Booster Club to build a “nest egg” to perpetuate the Maryann Farley Gagner scholarship and the Frank Dressler scholarship for Ludlow and Mount Holly students, even after BRHSMS is closed.
On Thursday, May 17, all nine quilts will be on display as part of the students’ art show starting at 6 p.m.
You can preview some of the quilts in the days leading up to the epic Thursday evening festivities by visiting Sweet Surrender Bakery, People’s United Bank, The Book Nook, and Go With The Flow: Yoga & Bodywork all on Main Street in Ludlow.
Contact the Black River Booster Club, firstname.lastname@example.org, for tickets!
Join us at 7 p.m. in Presidential Hall at Black River High School for the annual Pops Concert! This year’s performance, entitled, “Down Memory Lane,” will focus on the rich history of Black River High School as an integral part of the Ludlow community. The middle and high school band and chorus have prepared pop songs from each decade of the school’s existence on Main Street, along with a presentation of corresponding photographs from yearbooks dating back to 1940. The performance will feature music by Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Katy Perry, and more, wrapping up with an alumni sing-a-long of the Black River alma mater. Admission is free and all are welcome!
Following the concert will be the drawing for the quilt raffle winners!
