Image of Recognition of Quilters Guild

Chief Dennard recognized members of the Allatoona Quilters' Guild.  The Quilters' Guild was established with the purpose and goal of promoting and perpetuating the art of quilting, which led to hundreds of quilt donations to the Acworth Police Department for children and adults in distress.  The Allatoona Quilters' Guild expanded their art of quilt making and community outreach by creating stuffed police bears from officers' uniforms and patches.  The bears are given to children in need in an effort to help them remember that the police are here to help and that the Acworth community cares for them.  Alderman Price presented the Allatoona Quilters' Guild Proclamation to members in attendance.
