This October, in support of the Paint the Valley Pink Program, which is sponsored by the Sunbury Broadcast Corporation and Evangelical Hospital, The Packwood House Museum in Lewisburg, will present a display of quilts from its outstanding collection featuring the color pink.

The rooms will be decorated with predominately pink quilts and The Shoemaker Gallery within the museum, which houses only quilts, will be alive with the color pink!
