SOUTH WAYNE - After hearing the South Wayne Fire Department was looking into getting an extracting washing machine, the wheels in Mackenzie Bechtolt's mind were turning. She hopes to use her quilt-making skills to raise money to help the department pay for it. All of the proceeds from the tickets sold for the quilt Bechtolt made will go to the fire department.
