Thank You Q.O.V.

By Staff | Jul 5, 2018

To the Editor

I was honored to be one of the recipients of a “Quilt of Valor” at the June 23 presentation ceremony.

These quilts were made with love and appreciation by numerous volunteer quilters. A lot of time and effort were put into creating these precious works of art.

I think I can speak for all of the recipients to say thank you for recognizing our service to this country. We truly appreciate your generous gift.

In addition to thanking the Emmet County Quilts of Valor, we also want to thank the local Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall Committee for all their work planning the events, the City of Estherville and last but not least

Mayor Kenny Billings whose bucket list included bringing the Wall to Estherville. His suggestion and persistence helped make this happen.

God bless very one of these quilters for all their work!
