Missouri Press has created a one-of-a-kind handmade collectible quilt that features the flags of all current Missouri Press Association newspaper members.
Newspapers’ nameplates are grouped in 11 blocks around the center block, which features the Missouri Press Association and Missouri Press Foundation logos.
Pictures of each of the quilt blocks are at https://mopress.com/med_form_test.php.
The quilt measures 72” x 56” – a perfect size for displaying on a wall.
The quilt will be raffled to raise money for the Foundation to support its projects, which benefit all newspapers represented on the quilt.
Raffle tickets are on sale for each.
Tickets will be sold until the Saturday awards luncheon on Sept. 10 at the MPA Convention in Branson. The drawing will be held during the luncheon.
The winner will not have to be present.
Missouri Press will mail 10 tickets to each member newspaper. These can be sold to employees or the public or purchased by the newspaper. More tickets are available by contacting Missouri Press.
The newspapers will return the ticket stubs with the donations, and the stubs will be included in the drawing at the convention. Tickets also will be sold at the convention.
Purchased tickets are donations to the Foundation, so they are tax-deductible.
