Quilt donated to local nursing home

Lauren D’Amico, Lona Liverman and Michelle Rodrigous show off a quilt they and others from Oswego Industries worked on at The Robin’s Nest Quilt Shop & More in Fulton. Robin Hall, owner of the shop, said participants in the life program at Oswego Industries worked to make the quilt which then was donated to a local nursing home.
