Do We Have Quilters in Maine?

Lincoln County Public Safety Leader in Need of Support
The reason I am writing to you is to see if we can help one of our own? Kathy Blagdon has been instrumental in many aspects of the 911 environment. She has played and served in many capacities and is a true leader within our center. Recently, she has come forward with news to us they have found two tumors on her spine, which are cancerous. She has already begun various treatments and will be undergoing a stem cell implant during the month of January. Kathy has been involved in 911 for over 29 years! She has also been a reserve officer for the Lincoln County Sheriff's Department, and the Damariscotta Police Department. She is a past president of NENA, has been a volunteer for many years on numerous committees, and currently serves as the liaison with Maine EMS overseeing the Emergency Medical Dispatch training within our center. She also was most recently proud of her accomplishments of completing and becoming a Registered Public Safety Leader!

She is truly a great leader within the industry. I hope there is some way we can help her during this difficult time, as she is so very deserving of it. We are planning a benefit dinner and auction within our community on Saturday, January 11, 2014.

**If anyone can step up and make a quilt for Kathy, that would be wonderful. Please let me know**
