Students from each class put their thumbprints on the jars, which were then transformed into whimsical critters or funky flowers as part of each jar's unique theme.

Several handmade quilts were donated to the fundraiser by Philip Vore.

Among those keepsakes is a Thanksgiving wall hanging from 1995-95 that was signed by all teachers and students attending St. Mary's at that time. Other quilt donted by Vore include a small kindergarten quilt from April 1997, a small quilt from February 1998, and a Veggie Tales quilt from 1999.

"Glaze Craze from Aurora also brought over cookie jars and had students put thumbprints on the jars," said Sally Heidlage, first and second grade teacher at the school. "The thumbprints were then painted as hearts, bees, frogs, monkeys or playground characters."
