The Levy County Sheriff's Office (LCSO) is proud to announce its' new partnership with the Levy County Quilt Museum. Recently the newly formed Board of Directors for the Quilt Museum began conversation with LCSO and has agreed to begin the new partnership in conjunction with LCSO's community outreach program. The Board of Directors of the Quilt Museum has agreed to donate space in the museum to the Deputies of LCSO. The new office space will allow LCSO Deputies faster access to their area's of responsibility without having to drive to Bronson to complete tasks such as; report submissions, copying documents for active investigations, victim interviews or making phone calls for their cases. This location will provide a "base" of operation for the Deputies. In return LCSO Deputies will provide additional security for the Quilt Museum. Major Sullivan says "this will be community policing at its' finest" and "is honored to be partnered with the Levy County Quilt Museum."
The Quilt Museum will be hosting an Open House announcing the new partnership on Saturday May 19, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Live Bluegrass music will be played to entertain the guests and finger food will be available. They will also be having a yard sale of items donated by supporters, with proceeds benefiting the Museum.
The Quilt Museum was the dream of Miss Winnelle Horne. She began construction of the museum she called her home in 1991. Construction was completed in 1998. Her passion for this art will be on display Saturday. Miss Winnelle passed on to be with our Lord on January 30, 2012.
Please come and join us this Saturday at the Museum located at 11050 NW 10th Ave in Chiefland, Fl 32626. The Museum directors can be reached a 352-493-2801.
