Well a HUGE thank you for all that quilted, baked cookies, volunteered and many other things to help make the award ceremony go well. We gave 4 quilts out previous to the award ceremony, 56 on that day, 5 said no. 6 moved to the November event, 1 had passed, and the balance of the 88 will be delivered privately. A few hick-ups, but all went well. The thank yous have been coming in. We truly make a difference in not only the veteran’s life but of their families as well. We meet again on June 5th to continue our work for the November 3rd event. As of now I have 95 on that list. I have 30 to be delivered privately (not including the ones left over from May 5th.) I also have 60+ for May of 2020. It never ends. One at a time is what I say.
Laurie Doyle has the forms to sign up for the Birdies for the John Deere Classic. They did well for us last year.
