Quilts of Valor Presentations this weekend

I was so honored this weekend to present two quilts to two honorable WWII veterans. The first was to Mr. Mervin Towers a Navy Veteran and the second was to Mr. Andrew Dolan an Army Air Corp veteran.

It is an honor and privilege to meet these men and present them a quilt made by many hands for this special day. I work with QOV volunteers who cut out the quilt blocks, others sew them together with prayers and thoughts of their own loved ones who have served in wars; then another will quilt the quilt with love and binding stitches to hold all three layers together; the last job is to bind the quilt and add a label with needle and thread, all done by hand. All the time the quilt is moving thru many hands rich in tradition to wrap that special solder in warmth and love. It is a heartwarming project and very rewarding to show our appreciation for their service and sacrifice for us and to this great country. We thank each and everyone of you men and women.

I am proud to introduce to you Mr. Towers and Mr. Dolan.

Mr.  Towers, US Navy WWII veteran was resting when Doris Smith and I arrived at his home. Mr. Towers was very happy and surprised by the quilt. He is a lovely man and so appreciative to receive the quilt. I hear he is using it everyday.

Mr. and Mrs. Dolan and thank you to Joy McKeel for helping me with the presentation (far left) 

Myself, Mr. Dolan and George McKeel.
