On Sunday, March 20, 2022, in a ceremony at CommUnity Church in Salem, VA, Pastor Tom McCracken and wife Laurie, both Coast Guard veterans, were awarded their Quilts Of Valor. Pastor McCracken and his wife were nominated by a member of the congregation, Kitty Yates, who is also a member of Blue Ridge Quilters and Roanoke Quilts of Valor Stitchers. It was an excellent ceremony with the congregation in attendance.
The pictures that somehow got mixed up in the email finally appeared and follow.
Missing from our Show & Tell display at the March 8, 2022 meeting were the two Quilts of Valor made by Kitty Y. She made them to be presented to her pastor and his wife in a ceremony on Sunday, March 20th.
