  • Students filed into Justin Line’s engineering classroom with engineering plans, rulers and ideas to plot out the building design for the weight room of the athletic complex at Elizabethtown High School.

  • Members of the Stitchers Quilt Guild attended the annual mystery quilt workshop in January. Members are told ahead of time how much fabric to bring for the project and pre-cutting directions. Once the workshop starts everyone gets the first clue to work on, once that part of the quilt is done the next clue is passed out. This is done until the entire quilt top is complete. Patty Pruitt reveals the mystery quilt.
