For more than 50 years, women like Velma Bowman and Essie Grossnickle have gathered weekly at a small church in Union Bridge. Over hundreds of yards of fabric, they have shared their lives and their skills and nearly always donated the results of their efforts to charity. Their latest endeavor - a large navy and white coverlet with 16 diamond-shapes stitched into each square - goes on the auction block tomorrow. The ladies expect spirited bidding. At the Mid-Atlantic Disaster Response Auction in Westminster last year, one quilt sold for $3,100 and the total sold topped $30,000, money that went to worldwide disaster relief.

In July 1989, some of the experienced quilters of the Union Bridge Church of the Brethren wanted to ensure that the art and skill of quilting wouldn't be lost to future generations, so they decided to offer some how to classes in quilt making.They got 15 takers, and their plan worked -- not only did they teach a new generation of women the joys of quilting, but these newcomers became so enthusiastic about their new-found craft that they founded The Monday Night Quilters.These women, from Union Bridge, New Windsor and nearby Frederick County, meet every Monday evening at the church.

The kids are back in school, and they're almost in the swing of doing their homework before they turn on the television in the evenings. They're getting used to the weight of backpacks, brown bag lunches and the school bus schedule.On Labor Day night, our family took the time to say an official goodbye to summer by taking one last dip in the local swimming pool. We were the only people there at 7 p.m., and it was a luxury to have it to ourselves. The water was chilly, and the sun set quickly -- no more steaming evening heat.
