The Otto Kaiser Memorial Hospital Auxiliary is selling tickets for the “Legend of the Bluebonnet” embroidered lap quilt which is on display at the Gift Shop. You may purchase them while shopping at the Gift Shop, or contact any auxiliary member for tickets. Drawing for the quilt will be held on 6 May during the community Bluebonnet Days celebration.

The following is scripted in embroidery on the quilt:

“Long, long ago...

   In the time of the ancient Comanche nation, there came a great famine to the land.  The chiefs and all the people sacrificed and made offerings to the Great Spirit that the famine might be broken.  Among the many gifts, was the doll of a small little girl—her only possession.

The Great Spirit recognized the gift of the small girl as the greatest sacrifice of all and the famine was broken.  The Great Spirit acknowledged the gift by sending the Bluebonnets to cover the land and continues to do so each year.

May the Bluebonnet always remind us to acknowledge and be thankful for the many gifts bestowed upon us.”
