Fireweed raffled quilt

A one-of-a-kind quilt by Elaine Grabowski titled “Learning Is Fun” was raffled by Fireweed Academy on Wednesday, with Mindy Hunter holding the winning ticket.

About 840 tickets were sold, raising more than $2,800. Teachers and parents have yet to decide specifically how the proceeds will benefit the charter school. Following the drawing, Grabowski and the kindergarten through second-grade students discussed the history and art of quilt making.
