At Manor of the Plains in Dodge City, Kan., the Happy Quilters have been making quilts and lap blankets for various charities since 2005. Their first project was 20 quilts for the Council of Indian Nations in Phoenix, Ariz. Other recipients include survivors of Hurricane Katrina, the Greensburg, Kan., tornado, and house fires in Dodge City.
They regularly deliver lap blankets to veterans at the Kansas Soldiers’ Home in nearby Fort Dodge. In addition, every new resident at Manor of the Plains is presented with a quilt or a crocheted lap blanket wrapped with a big bow to welcome them to the Manor of the Plains family.
