Baldwin City Quilts of Valor

Recently I learned of a group of ladies in Baldwin City who are busily working to make quilts to give to thirteen (13) Baldwin City area World War II veterans this Veterans Day (November 11, 2015). The effort is part of the nationwide, known as Quilts of Valor. Which according to their website,
The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.
The ladies plan to present the thirteen quilts on Nov.11 at noon at the Baldwin City Elementary School, Intermediate Center, 100 Bullpup Drive and at 2pm at Vintage Park, 321 Crimson Ave both in the city of Baldwin City.
After the presentation, the ladies will pickup their needles and thread once again, to start making quits for those who served in the Korean War, according to Jo Cornelius. Whom I first learned about the group from.
The local group can be found on Facebook as well.
