Wilma Bliemeister, a 26-year member of the Sequim Guild of Seattle Children's Hospital, was honored with a certificate of appreciation Wednesday, Sept. 8.
The event took place at The Lodge at Sherwood Village during the Guild's September meeting.
Bliemeister, who now resides at Sequim's Sherwood Manor, took it upon herself to gather crayons for this year's drive for the hospital.
"I got them from everybody," she said with a laugh. "Strangers and everyone."
Blieimeister said the folks in charge of activities at Sherwood Manor were very helpful in the effort. They kept a big tin bucket and a big sign on their desk, she said.
Bliemeister moved to Sequim from Big Pine, Calif., in 1984 or 1985 and has been active in the guild ever since.
"I do it because I enjoy it," she said. Each year Seattle Children's Hospital asks its hundreds of guilds throughout the state to collect items that will directly benefit the hospital's patients. This year it was crayons.
Those interested in joining the organization should call Carol Labbe, guild president, at 683-7130.
