The women of the Plank Road Quilters Guild recently traced, sewed, cut out, stuffed and dressed 111 dolls for the Golisano Children's Hospital Pediatric Unit. The dolls are used for doctors to show their young patients where their incisions will be by drawing on the dolls and demonstrate the use of a "port" using the half rubber ball the ladies sewed into each doll's chest. The children select their doll from the group colorfully dressed in pajamas made by Guild members and then draw a face on their doll. Pictured are Liverpool/Salina/Clay members Vi Ramsey, Sue Swift, Marilyn Sees, Phyllis Angell, Shirley Maryniak, Cece Reardon, Betsy DeFazio, Jannie Dewees, and Pam Allen and North Syracuse/Cicero members Alpha Fountain, Margaret Lambert, Linda LoBello, Joyce Wheaton, Phyllis Shaver, and Mary Pettit together with other Guild members.
