Every year the Fulton County Quilt Club (FCQC) chooses a community project. This year the FCQC, which has 25 members, chose to take on the task of quilting 10 quilts for the 10 available beds at the Wounded Roost, the cabin on Mason-Dixon Safari Club located on private Fulton County property.

A total of 15 of the 25 quilt club members came forward to donate their skills, and FCQC was able to have fabric donated from The Sewin’ Place in Caldedonia, Warfordsburg Iota Lambda chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, and other individual donors. All the quilts were started and completed within 2018 and will also be featured at the Fulton Fall Folk Festival. Some of the quilting patterns used for the donated quilts were the Log Cabin, Friendship Star, Irish Chain, Arrowhead, and Quilt of Valor.

The Mason-Dixon Warrior Adventures, a local organization that started in 2011, brings wounded warriors from various military hospitals in the mid-Atlantic region to the streams, woods and fields of Franklin and Fulton counties for fishing and hunting outings. These outings originally began under the guidance of the local Mason-Dixon Chapter of Safari Club International and now also include a spring gobbler hunt and fly-fishing outing, two pheasant hunts and three trophy deer hunts each year.
