Raffle to restore The Old Miakka Schoolhouse

My friend and fellow AWEteam mate, Sarah Nolt,  is having a raffle to help preserve and restore The Old Miakka Schoolhouse pictured below:

Sarah says: "The schoolhouse is a historic landmark, and one of the only remaining one-room schoolhouses in this area. The building is being well preserved by a handful of the Community Club members. I attended a one-room school from 5th -8th grade, so I tend to think this is important." You can read more on her blog by clicking here.

Sarah is a talented Artisian who has made this lovely quilted wall hanging to be raffled off on October 3, 2010.
Sarah will also offer 6 tickets for $5., 12 tickets for $10., 110 for $100.

Thank you for helping out! Payment, including a self addressed stamped envelope - for your raffle ticket(s) - can be sent to: Sarah Nolt, 651 Myakka Rd., Sarasota, Fla 34240-8777.

You can find more of Sarah's wonderful creations here:

I will check this out later today Doris as I am getting ready to go to the doctor this morning...what a beautiful quilt!

Restoring the Old School House is a must do! We don't have too many of those across our great land anymore.

Thanks so much for the heads up!
Enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend! :)

Many Blessings!

I adore old School Houses! I oil painted an old one in my home town area in central NY State many years ago and seeing and reading your article, I need to look it up and get it out so I can once again enjoy it! Love all your scrubbies! hugs, K

Hi Doris,

I am a sucker for REstoration projects! I was Exec Director for my hometown Main Street program, which was funded by the National Historical Trust and State Programs. Anything that has to do with HISTORY, I am all about it!!

Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit and for leaving the nice comment!

Hope you have a great Memorial Day Weekend!
