Number 50 is at the Reichen Farm, 8645 Old Cornelius Pass Rd, Hillsboro. This bright block represents crops the farm grows: red for crimson clover, blues for the sky and blueberries, and the two golds for the grass seed and wheat. They have a wonderful historic red house nearby as well. Roy remembers building hay bale tunnels, rope swings and lots of other family events. Now, they host an annual lively 4th of July family and neighbor picnic.
|Number 49 is a Priscilla Block, and was inspired by a string-pieced heirloom quilt of Sam Van Dyke's family. The block was a birthday present from Sam's wife Lori last fall, but was just installed Friday. Sam is the third generation on this farm founded by William Van Dyke. They are working on a Century Farm status. See this one going south on Hwy 47, looking east, just before you get to the Verboort exit on the round-about. The address is 40926 NW Verboort Rd.|
