One of the Weisbrod Hospital Auxiliary Nursing Home projects these past two years was to hang a different quilt each month for the enjoyment of the residents, staff and visitors. These quilts were made by various, very talented ladies and groups from different communities and elsewhere.

For the month of June, the Auxiliary wanted to honor the fathers and grandfathers for Father's Day.

Did you father ever wear a tie to work, church, dances, or on an evening out with his best "gal" - your Mother?
