We are a busy bunch of quilters that strive to provide quilts as our small and humble way of saying "thanks" to our returning troops. Rita Pennington (firstname.lastname@example.org) is our "Drill Sergeant" and she keeps the (quilting) troops moving and motivated. We have 7 monthly sew-ins: St. Charles, Elgin, Rolling Meadows, Arlington Heights, Crest Hill, Geneva and Montgomery. See side bar for more info.

Thank a Veteran each and every day

Yesterday, Sue had a presentation to two Marines (Mark and Joe). Here are some pictures and a few words from Sue. Thank you, Sue!
It went just fine. It was a nice little ceremony, complete with
fire, police, and motorcycle escort. Even Joe Walsh showed up to give a
congressional thanks and certificate.
I have attached pictures that I captioned. Feel free to delete the captions.
Mark is the one who returned while Joe will be redeploying back to Afghanistan next month.
