Centennial Quilt on Display

The Cherokee Women's Club has presented the Charles Hall Museum a Commemorative quilt, celebrating the town's centennial, July 4, 2011. The design incorporates archival photographs of the town, set among quilt squares in red, white, blue, and gold. It was specially created by a group of about a dozen women from the club, whose names are on the back. The quilt is now displayed for all to view in the museum's #1 building. The Charles Hall Museum is located at 229 Cherohala Skyway and displays amazing collections of photographs, guns, telephone equipment, furniture, and many historic artifacts collected by Charles Hall, local historian and former Mayor of Tellico Plains. Admission is free.

The Cherokee Women's club is a non-profit group of women from the Tellico Plains area (not exclusively) who raise money to support local needs. The main fundraiser is the Cookie Caper at the annual Candlelight Walk in Tellico Plains in December. The group supports the library, the local schools with scholarships and a creative writing/poetry contest, and well as other needs of the community as they arise. New members are always welcome! Join and help the community. Meetings are held monthly, September through May. Contact Sharon Bodie, President, at 423-253-4269 for more information.
