Humanitarian Award Recipient
Congratulations to Ann Axelson, recipient of our 2020-21 Humanitarian Award! Ann has been a member of the Guild since 2003 and really exemplifies the Friendship Square mission of service, education and inspiration to others. She has always gone beyond what is expected as a member and does so quietly without seeking recognition. During this year's pandemic, alone, she made more than 500 masks for others, while staying home to attend to an ailing husband.
Over the years she has worked on the Opportunity Quilt design team and on preparation of opportunity quilt blocks, has served as Membership Chair, Quilt Show Treasurer, Quilt Show Co-Chair and Boutique Team Leader. She attends Saturday Sew-In regularly and is an active member sewing Kumfort Quilts. She is always ready to share a new tip, tool or technique she has learned about and to encourage others to try new things as well.
She is also active in the community, volunteering at the La Habra Public Library and a local hospital and participate in a large number of community events, such as children's craft projects, preparing meals for other, the list goes on.
Although she prefers to be behind the scenes, for this moment in time we are exposing her for who she truly is: generous, kind, smart, wonderful and inspirational. We are proud and lucky to have her as a member of our Guild.
