Christmas began early for local quilters on Nov. 9 at the Washington Coleman Community Center when members of the Golden Leaf Quilters Guild helped the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office “Stuff the Cruiser” with Christmas toys and quilts for local children. To donate new toys to the program, call the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office at 434-476-3339 for more information. With guild members in the back row are (from left) Capt. Darnell Barksdale, 911 director Wendy Jones, deputy Chad Wilborne and Halifax County Sheriff Fred Clark.
