New Castle resident wins SRMA quilt

Sherry Reno of New Castle, Ind., recently had the opportunity to visit Shipshewana and went home with a new quilt courtesy of the annual SRMA raffle.

Each year, two winners receive a beautiful handmade quilt from the Service Committee, a branch of the Shipshewana Retail Merchants Association (SRMA). In addition, the winner is treated to dinner at the Blue Gate Restaurant and provided with an overnight stay at the beautiful Farmstead Inn and Conference Center.

The raffle is a fundraising effort with proceeds covering the cost of planting spring and fall flowers around town. Funds are also used for May Pole wreaths and flowers along with Christmas wreaths, and has been used to improve public restrooms and sidewalks for guests that come to Shipshewana.
