All are welcome to come for a short ceremony Saturday, January 28th at 1pm to help us honor John Wolfe, Veteran of WWII and his brother Robert Wolfe, Veteran of the Korean War at a Quilts of Valor ceremony.
The quilts made by the Quilts of Valor Foundation’s member volunteers are called Quilts of Valor, sometimes referred to as QOVs. They are awarded to U.S. military service members and veterans who have been touched by war. A Quilt of Valor is a lifetime award. The QOV website currently shows 151,073 QOV’s awarded at this time.
Please come for a short ceremony and presentation of their quilts in the Uptown Theatre space in the First Street Community Center at 1pm, followed by a reception upstairs in the Library for refreshments.
From Kim Wolfe:
Here are the quilts going to John and Bob. I’m not sure which one to whom, Kelli Wolfe knows as she not only dyed the fabric and quilted them. Elayne, the CR Quilt coordinator for QoV, pieced the quilts. They are stunning in person!
