Special to the Tribune


The "Be a Santa to a Senior" program gives back to the area's older adults who may be isolated seniors, widowed and living alone, by offering gifts and companionship. The BASTAS program is run by the local Home Instead Senior Care office in partnership with other area organizations. The Home Instead Senior Care office provides assistance with senior's daily activities that aren't as easy for them to do as they used to be; thus, making it possible for them to live in their own home.

As part of Lonesome Valley Quilt Guild's Community Project Program, during 2013 LVQG donated 142 quilts and blankets, plus 38 other smaller items to six different area charities. A monthly meeting is held where the LVQG members meet and sew all these items for the charity groups. They also donated 170 pounds of non-perishable food and $200 to the Yavapai Food Bank this year.

LVQG has monthly meetings the first Monday at the Mountain Valley Church of God, 8123 E. Manley Drive, Prescott Valley. LVQG has many activities:show and tell; a library where members can check out books on quilting; a fat quarter exchange; a secret sister program; a President's fabric challenge; a mini quilt group that meets in each other's homes and works on specialty projects; door prizes; LVQG members will teach a class periodically on how to make a project - free for members; and, a yearly Holiday Boutique is held in November.

For more information on LVQG or their community projects, call Chris Turner, 928-775-6448 or Judy Lapp, 928-925-1145.
