Sarpy County Museum volunteer Emily Larson performs a final check Friday of the 76 quilts that will be on display at the museum through Aug. 17. The Great Sarpy County Quilt Exhibit, an annual event, is one of several events to be held in June.

The Sarpy County Museum will be bustin’ out all over during June.

The activities began Saturday with the opening of the museum’s annual “Great Sarpy County Quilt Exhibit” that showcases colorful and creative quilts provided from across the region.

That event will be joined this coming Saturday by the museum’s popular pie and ice cream fundraiser to be held from 2 to 4 p.m. Pie and ice cream will be on sale during those hours while a pie judging contest will be held at 3.

Any attendee may submit a pie for judging by filling out a form the day of the event.

The quilt show will feature 76 quilts hung throughout the museum, all different from the quilts displayed last year. They will be on display through Aug. 17.

One quilt, donated by Deanna Kleider of Springfield, will be raffled. The quilt is king-size and was purchased new in Pennsylvania in 2002.

Other June events at the museum include:

• June 22 —The museum will host its inaugural Quarter Auction. The event will be held at the Bellevue Volunteer Firefighters Hall at 2108 Franklin St., and will involve vendors selling and auctioning various items. The event is a fundraiser for the museum. Tickets are $5 and may be purchased at the door the day of the event or at the museum.

• June 26 —A Caring & Sharing event will be held at the Don & Millie’s restaurant at 23rd Street and Cornhusker Road in Bellevue from 5 to 9 p.m. Twenty percent of every dollar spent will be donated to the museum.
