Couple donates quilt to Clermont Senior Services for auction

Jim and Nancy Parker recently attended the Hachstetler Amish Auction with one thing in mind – to bid on something they could donate to the annual Art, Antiques & Collectibles Auction, sponsored by Clermont Senior Services.

Nancy is a member of the auction committee, while Jim is a former CSS board of trustees member and chairman. Both are strong supporters of the agency’s auction, and besides being donors, they are fun and competitive bidders.

“Jim asked me to mark the quilts I wanted him to bid on. When I saw the Americana quilt, I knew it was the perfect one for our (agency’s) auction. It is red, white and blue with a beautiful Lone Star pattern,” Nancy says. “This county has lost so many to the war in Afghanistan, it just seemed fitting. And, the proceeds will benefit our seniors here in Clermont County, many of whom are veterans.”
