Life Skills Quilt Auction

(Le Mars) A 14 year tradition continues this summer at the Plymouth County Fair.  A quilt
auction to benefit Life Skills Training center will be held Saturday, July 31st at 2 pm in air-conditioned
Century Hall.  This years auction will feature a quilt made to honor long-time Life Skills employee
Dennis Kessenich.  The Kessenich family wanted to honor Dennis with a quilt, and a chance
conversation between Dennis’ sister-in-law, Dawn Kessenich and fellow scrap-book enthusiast and quilter Virginia Freyermuth led to this year’s entry.  Life Skills public relations coordinator Becky
Scheitler says the quilt made to honor Dennis is quite unique.

Dennis, 49, the son of Stan and Roselene Kessenich, has been at Life Skills Training center since 1980.
In 2004, Dennis received the Life Skills Client Achievement Award.  This year’s auction will
feature between 60 and 70 quilts.  The quilts will be on display at First National Bank’s main
downtown location about two weeks before the Plymouth County Fair.  The 2010 fair is held
this year from July 28 through August 1st.
