Rochester Children's Book Festival
In the Fall of 2012, Altrusa completed its seventh year participating in the Rochester Children's Book Festival. This wonderful festival brought many of our local children book authors to one location. There were craft and reading rooms, three workshops by authors on the craft of writing every half hour and many community groups' tables to visit. We collected three boxes of books, that were donated to win a raffle ticket for the quilt below. At the end of the Festival, the winning ticket was drawn and the quilt was sent off to the grandmother in Hilton who wanted to win it for her grandson. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the grand effort.
