Flowers for Each Month

Ruby Warren

Ruby Warren

“I grew up in Hagerstown, MD, but formed a Gettysburg connection when I married Gettysburg native Edward Warren.

At the age of 10, I joined the 4-H Club and the sewing projects were always my favorite subject. When I was 12, the Leader of my 4-H Club asked me to be a Junior Leader and help teach the younger girls to sew. I think it’s a great hobby! If you are bored, it will certainly occupy your time.

I belong to a local quilt guild and several smaller groups of ladies who just enjoy getting together for fellowship and sewing.

I love history. I am a member of the Adams County Historical Society and serve on the Board of Directors for the Cumberland Township Historical Society. I also reading and find time to belong to a book club that meets every month. I also find time to serve on the Treasury Committee for my church.

During earlier year, my husband and I raised three children; Linda Crawford, who lives in Shreveport, LA, with her husband Mike and their two daughters. Lisa Burt and her husband John reside in Gettysburg, and their two sons live in California. Our son Ed, Jr. and his wife Kathy live in Orrstown, PA.

It is such an honor to be a part of August’s First Friday feature at the Adams County Arts Council.”

Ruby Warren will continue to hang until September 29.
