Boystown Mothers' Guild

The Mother's Guild of Boystown was formed from the enthusiasm of the original Boystown Museum Project.. We had such tremendous support from the guild then for Boys Town that we just didn't want to stop the momentum. Fr. Boes was so impressed with our efforts that he has given us his blessing to continue the work begun decades ago by women around the country to provide quilts for the children of Boys Town. This small group will be focusing on creating quilts to be used for purposes of fundraising and for the children and family teaching couples. Our mission has been left very broad so that we have room to grow. Some of the ideas that Fr. and I discussed were quilts for recognizing family teaching couples at the annual recognition night, quilts for the various fundraising auctions at our sites around the country (did you know that there are 19 sites across the US?) and quilts for the children.

What would you like to see this new group accomplish? What would you be willing to donate? A lighthouse quilt or maple leaves for Boys Town of New England? Texas Roses for Boys Town of San Antonio?
