The group met in the new location for the third time, Fire Station #1 in Roanoke, VA, where there is plenty of room, plenty of light and lots of plugs in the floor. And lots of comradery while the sewing machines hum and the irons get pressing.
As always, the group was busy making blocks for quilts which will be assembled, quilted and awarded to local veterans who have been touched by war. In the year that this group has been assembled, there have been 24 quilts awarded and an ever expanding list of veterans who have been nominated by loved ones, friends and acquaintances.
It is a privilege to be a part of this organization and have a small part in providing comfort and thanking those brave men and women who have put it all on the line to protect this amazing country.
