Organizations: Alpha Delta Master (05-07-14)


The April 10 meeting of Alpha Delta Master was held at Stadium View Apartments.
Jennifer Morlock and Karen Kotula, both of the Wood County Ohio 4-H, presented program about the 4-H
Quilt Square Trail in Wood County.
Morlock is the 4-H Program Assistant at Wood County’s Ohio State University Extension Office and the
winner of the 2013 Ohio Achievement in Service Award. Kotula, chairperson of the Quilt Square project,
was a member of 4-H and is eager to teach young people about the significance of quilts and help them
develop the skills required to create them.
A major focus of the project is for 4-H members to use their hands for larger service. For example, they
have made quilts for a hospice center, a neonatal unit, and teen mothers. For the Quilt Trail, 4-H
members selected patterns, and constructed and painted 20 quilt square blocks that are prominently
displayed on historical barns, buildings, and farms throughout the county.
Anyone interested in taking a tour of the Quilt Trail can obtain brochures at the Wood County Historical
Museum, BG Chamber of Commerce, BG Convention & Visitors Bureau, or OSU Extension Office.
Earlier this year, Ginny Stewart, owner of Bowling Green Hats and Apparel, presented a program about the
efforts of a group of local merchants working in concert with the Chamber of Commerce and the BG
Convention and Visitors Bureau to encourage people to come to Bowling Green. Their efforts will include
a creating a strong shop-local campaign, collaborative advertising, enhancing the online presence
through social media, and branding Bowling Green as a destination for visitors throughout Northwest Ohio
and neighboring states.
Dolores Black will host the May 8 meeting at the Wood County Justice Center library.
