Mrs. Gasperik Winds Prizes

It has come to our attention that one of the women of our village, Mrs. Stephen Gasperik, was awarded 2 first prizes & a second prize at the Ill. State Fair for her quilts. The 2 firsts were given for her "Delectable Mountain" & "Bridal Bouquet". The second place ribbon was place on her "Indiana Wreath". Last year she won a 1st & two 3rds.

Quilting is almost a lost art, requiring a tremendous amount of patience & skill with a needle.

Mrs. Gasperik is to be congratulated on her skill & her awards.

The Gasperiks are a retired couple who moved to our village only a few yrs. ago to 1411 W. 174th St. If awards were given for such, Mr. Gasperik would probably get some sort of ribbon for the beautiful yard & colorful flowers surrounding his house this summer.
