Retirement Quilt for Cindy Baldwin

Please see message below from Karen Rigby:

Dear PTO,

A) I hope to see you at "Light the Night" next Friday. It's always a wonderful time!

B) Stephanie Ingle collected Claxton t-shirts and made a BEAUTIFUL professional quilt for the auction. This quilt includes some of Mrs. Baldwin's old Claxton shirts, and musical shirts from shows she has directed.

I think it would be really cool if we could chip in on purchasing this quilt FOR Mrs. Baldwin- as she approaches retirement next December. If you are willing to chip in- please reply privately to Karen and let me know how much you could contribute. I'll take that final amount to the auction, along with pledged parent contributions and bid on behalf of all of us for Mrs.Baldwin. If we win- I'll email you individually to let you know how much to bring in to me.

Please don't feel pressured to contribute if you can't, I just wanted to extend this opportunity to anyone interested.
