"The Dorcas Project" of the Palm Street Church of Christ ladies and friends began meeting in June with the goal of making small lap quilts for the Red Oaks Nursing Home, formerly Golden Years Manor, in Lonoke. A total of 68 of these were cut and pieced together by approximately 18 ladies and young girls throughout these past six months. On Dec. 8 a Christmas Party was held for the residents of Red Oaks. About 30 members and friends of the congregation joined together that day to serve refreshments, sing Christmas carols, watch a presentation by the children and finally to distribute the quilts to all the residents there.
