Quilt honors late crossing guard


Crossing Guard QuiltCalifornia - At first glance, it's hard to see how the images of children's drawings, old photos, trucks and police dogs come together in the twin-sized quilt that will hang in the office at Township Elementary School in Simi Valley.

But those who knew Leo Borelli, Township's longtime crossing guard who died Jan. 6 at the age of 88, understand.

"It's Leo that we loved and cherished, and this is all for him," said his friend, Owen Strang.

Strang's wife, Arlene, coordinated the quilt's creation. On Thursday morning, Borelli's quilt was unfolded in front of the schoolchildren and other community members who wanted to remember Borelli in a more tangible way.
