GLLM QUILT AUCTION: The annual Green Lake Lutheran Ministries quilt auction was on Saturday, July 27. Two Salem members donated quilts to the auction and received awesome reviews! Kathy Leindecker's large quilt received "Best Large Quilt" and was the second highest bid, selling for a fantastic $1,400. Ardy Eekhoff's baby quilt sold for $300, which was the highest price paid in the small quilt category. GLLM and Salem are so thankful for Kathy's and Ardy's dedication, donating their time and talents to these quilts and this auction, which raises funds for the GLLM bible camp.
