Ale Hogue Recipient of Humanitarian Award
The Annual FSQG Humanitarian Award recognizes one of our members for outstanding community service above and beyond the ordinary. At the February guild meeting we recognized Ale Hogue for her dedication and service to humanity with the 2019 Humanitarian Award.
Ale is commended by the membership for being the champion of our recent 7-Stars Camp Quilt project where Ale converted her home into Quilt Central Station and coordinated the completion and delivery of 318 quilts for the Big Bear campers. The recipients of the quilts are the school age children of servicemen/women, either active duty, discharged wounded or killed in action.
Ale is described as a loyal friend, quick to volunteer whenever needed and she gets others involved. She goes out of her way to help people which makes a difference in the lives of others. She goes above and beyond the call of duty, she’s enthusiastic about philanthropy projects and considered the “Energizer bunny”. Generosity is part of Ale’s DNA as she contributes her time, energy and financial resources to many causes that benefit others. “My life has been enriched because I have been privileged to know her”. Ale is the living representation of the “Aloha Spirit”.
The reason why we exist as a non-profit guild is to inspire quilters and their communities through education, fellowship, community outreach and philanthropic activities. As an organization our values are best described through Philanthropy, Friendship, Creativity, Fun, Teamwork, and Community. These are not just words, but the guiding principles by which we make decisions, commit to projects, and represent ourselves. Thank you, Ale for all that you do to serve the guild and the community from the entire membership of FSQG. Submitted by Kathy Harris, President FSQG
I am so humbled to be the recipient of this prestigious award!. It’s been a real pleasure to be associated with the very special members in our guild. I may have been the catalyst for some projects but all the accomplishments and “the glory” belong to the guild members who continually make it happen by bringing the projects “to life”!
Heartfelt thanks to you for this recognition! Ale Hogue
Mourning Project began to bring awareness to the death of 2300 babies who die before they reach 1 year of age. Each of the infants lost in a given year will be remembered with a pair of handmade booties. As part of this effort FSQG members made 100 pairs of baby booties to complete a square to be part of the Big Installation. Click here to see complete project. The pink square is FSQG's contribution to the project. For additional information go to
