TOWNSEND — The Townsend Senior Center is slated to have a new addition open later this fall and they are offering the greater community a chance to be part of its fabric.

A group within the senior center known as Quazy Quilters has started a signature quilt. With a little help from the Friends of the Townsend Seniors, the group will sell blocks for signature until Friday, Nov. 19. Blocks are selling for $5 and all proceeds will go toward the senior center.

Quilter Kathy Spaulding helped come up with the signature quilt idea said 80 blocks have already been sold. In total, the group could sell enough to divide them into two large banners. However, how the final quilt is presented will ultimately be determined when the group is allowed inside of the senior center’s new space.

Members of the Townsend Senior Center come from all over, Spaulding added. There are members from Lunenburg, Pepperell and the communities just north in New Hampshire such as Hollis and Brookline.

“They don’t have to be a senior, it can be anybody that wants to put their name on the the quilt to help support the senior center,” Spaulding said.
