A total of 150 people filled the Monument Senior Center on Nov. 11 for a Veterans Day luncheon and special presentation.
Quilts of Valor were gifted to 47 veterans, presented by Charlotte Barker and Judy Harris.
The quilts were sewn and pieced by local residents Harris, Cathy Woods, Cheryl Ringering, Pattie Engle, Sue Cavender, Silvia Cockrell, Lonnie Lawrence and Jeanne Strange.
The quilting was done by Janice Dickens and Mary Lou Drury of Mt. Vernon and Susan McGuire of Spokane.
The Quilts of Valor Foundation is a nationwide nonprofit in which members sew quilts to certain specifications to give to veterans in honor of their service.
“Many volunteers showed up to make this event so successful,” Strange said. “It’s amazing what this community does to support one another.”
Harris organized the dinner which was sponsored by the veterans.
