Presentation at the Craft show!

While we await news on how the quilt presentation went last night, thought I'd tell you about yesterday at the craft show at my church, Holy Angels, Aurora. Again, being able to just let people know what we do was rewarding along, of course, sitting among a couple quilting buddies! We also had the honor to present a QOV to a fellow parishioner and I hope he doesn't mind my posting his thank you:

I am very grateful for the fantastic quilt of valor, which you so graciously presented to me at the St Anne's Society Craft Fair at Holy Angels Church on Sunday, December 5, 2010.

It will forever be held in high prominence in honor of my 36 years of military service, in the U.S. Army.

The efforts of your Quilts of Valor Foundation are a true visual testament to the appreciation and support currently provided to our service personnel. I am certain that your example of gratitude will leave a lasting impression upon the lives of the many service personnel blessed to receive a QOV.

Again, God bless and thank you very much for the tangible recognition of my military service.

Thanks for the privilege of having served...

Ty Simmons
CW4 (Ret.)
U.S. Army, AVN

What a wonderful opportunity to thank a vet. 36 years is a long time in Service. Thank you for recognizing him with the quilt and my personal thanks for his SERVICE.
