The Streator Leading Ladies created an award in honor of Beckie Chismarick.
Beckie was a member of SLL and a past president. The award will be given to a female senior at Woodland High School who is active in her community, with a focus on leadership and community service. The plan is to award this every year in honor of Beckie, a former Woodland Key Club advisor.
The award of $500. will be presented at the Woodland Awards Night on Wednesday, May 10.
The money made from this quilt raffle will seed the award.
The Marcella quilt is 94 inches-by-94 inches. It was pieced by Pam Riss in the past 12 months. Tickled Pink, a new quilt store in Pontiac, sponsored this quilt as a block of the month during 2022. The quilt was designed by Nancy Rink for Marcus Fabrics. The pattern uses the Marcella Marchives fabric collection designed by Nancy Rink.
