Revelstokian earns thanks for Quilting for Calgary

Christie Page of Calgary sends a special thanks to Revelstoke resident Linda Walford, who created a special quilt for flood victims.

Christie Page of Calgary, Alberta sends a special thanks to Revelstoke resident Linda Walford, who created a special quilt to help out the victims of the flash flooding earlier this year. Page’s home was flooded with almost six feet of water in June, forcing her family to flee. In the weeks following the flood, as Page tried to put her life back in order, a volunteer approached her with blanket created through the Quilting for Calgary campaign. She received these quilts below, embroidered with the names of their creators: R. Woodroff from Princeton, B.C. and Linda Walford of Revelstoke, B.C. Page writes: “I hope you can find a way to print a thank-you to the two sweet people who have done a random act of kindness that really means a lot for my family.” Here, Page’s young children relax on the quilts they received from the Quilting for Calgary campaign. – Aaron Orlando
