RUPERT — There is a new fundraising project at the Minidoka Museum -- an effort to build a display case to house the Emerson's Ladies Aid-Community Quilt. The quilt was made in 1932 and contains many family names, including Cloughley, Moncur, Christen, VanHise, Schoenfeld, Hollenbeck, Ames, See, Whidden, Schrock, Keefer, Nelson, Yahn, Salwell, Schodde, Eifer, Shafer, Barry, LaRue, Denning, Gochnour, Heckendorn, Drew, McCord, Olsen and Clayville.
"Take a look at this 1932 quilt and the family names, perhaps your own mother, grandmother, great-grandmother or other relatives may have been involved with this project and you can be also," organizers said in a news release.
Donations can be made at the Minidoka County Historical Society Museum., P.O. Box 21, Rupert, ID 93350.
