Memorial Day Activities and Soldier Quilts

Its been a while since posting but like many others, I've been taking advantage of the nice weather and getting some outdoor things done. 

We did do a very wonderful "outdoor" activity and that was celebrating our veterans with the local VFW at the cemetary.  They always present a stirring ceremony for the vets and have a coffee and donut get together at the Tabor Lutheran Church.  It is here that we display our quilts that are going to various places like Afghanistan and Germany to hospitals.

The variety was very pretty and I'm sure they will be much appreciated.  We ended up with a total of 48 quilts.  My sister Jenny has friends who also donated 2 quilts,  quilts were also donated from the quilter's at Tabor Church, we certainly appreciate their contribution and that of our members.  So thank you so much for your efforts and that of those who showed up to display them and get them ready to ship. 



  1. They look wonderful. Will be taking them to Green Bay this week so they can be shipped over seas. Then the soldiers will have them by winter
    when they are really needed.

  2. Thank you ladies for your wonderful gifts of comfort. I am sure they will be appreciated by these soldiers who are so far from home.
