Excerpt from Alexander News by Cassie Oakes:
The grand finale of the week at the Grange happened on Saturday when the Grange hosted Quilts of Valor and five veterans, Dale Holst, Lenny Hanson, Skip Colson, Pedro Ceijas and Ken Carter received quilts, four of which belong to the Alexander Grange. The Ceremony was completed with a time of refreshments and conversation for the Veteran’s and their families and friends.
The Quilts of Valor Foundation was begun in 2002 by Catherine Roberts. Do you quilt, and would like to help? Do you know of a veteran in need or would just like more information about this wonderful organization check them out at www.qovf.org.
