About the Rotary Antique Quilt Show
At the request of Paducah’s AQS Quilt Show founders, Bill and Meredith Schroeder, the Rotary Club of Paducah embarked on their first Antique Quilt Show and Sale in April 1989. The annual show is now an official sanctioned event of AQS QuiltWeek. The Rotary Antique Quilt Show offers some of the world’s most beautiful quilts, each year featuring various themed quilts. In addition, the show offers a Merchant Mall with world-renowned vendors.

Proceeds = Scholarships
Proceeds from this show provide college scholarships annually for local students through the Rotary Education Assistance Program (REAP). In 2010, the Rotary Club of Paducah initiated the idea of the Community Scholarship Program as a public-private partnership with strong participation from Rotary, the City of Paducah, McCracken County Fiscal Court, West Kentucky Community and Technical College, and a number of local businesses, along with Paducah Junior College, Inc. and partnering high schools. The intent of this scholarship is to provide gap funding to assist students in attaining a two-year degree or industry certification at West Kentucky Community and Technical College.

Getting to the Robert Cherry Civic Center: Ride the free shuttle from the AQS Shuttle Stop at the Convention Center to the Robert Cherry Civic Center for the Rotary Show.
