Starr Mountain QOV Quilters

The week of Veteran's Day was a special week for Starr Mountain QOV
Quilters. After several months of diligent work, we made our first
major presentation for the Veteran's Day service at First Baptist
Church in Englewood, Tennessee. (This is where our group meets.) All
veterans were recognized, but our group had the honor of awarding
quilts to those who had served in war. Seen in the picture are: Sissy
Riggs, Gene Riggs (Vietnam and Desert Storm), Billie Reid, Barbara
Pritchard (QOV Representative), Jerome Reid (Korea), Kenny Dickson
(Korea), Bobbie Dickson, David Bull (Vietnam), Lisa Brown, Caleb
Martin (Iraq and Afghanistan), Lacey Martin, Kim Graham accepting for
her husband, Todd Graham (Iraq), Sarah Patterson (a student who worked
on Graham's quilt) and Teena Chrisman (teacher whose students pieced
Graham's quilt). Not pictured: Ralph Davis (Vietnam) and Doyle Hicks

Later in the week we presented quilts to two ladies: one in the
National Guard, who has served in Iraq and will go to Afghanistan in
January and the second is currently serving as a combat photographer
with the Marines in Afghanistan.

What a way to celebrate our wonderful veterans!
