Lewis and Clark Quilts of Valor

May 19, 2012 the Lewis-Clark Quilts of Valor met for a day of Sewing and
sharing.  Five WWII Veterans were presented a Quilt of Valor.  Two of our
veterans were POW.  These men were so appreciative to have been presented.

I have included the individual photo of John Hoye.  John has written his
memoir in a book called "Three Damned Wars Too Many".  There are not many
men of his caliber.  John not only served in WWII but Korea and Vietnam.
He was shot down twice, POW, 2 time Purple Heart recipient and according to
his wife, Bette, "a damned good pilot!".  John presented his book to me
before the presentations.  I have started reading it and am having a hard
time putting it down.

We were pleased to have June Moore and her hubby Mike join us.  We all know
June is wonderful but Mike is an equal with me.  As you can see, we put him
to work!

We were also pleased to have Debbie and Judy from Vancouver, WA.  They are
beginning their journey as Under our Wings coaches.  June 14 will be their
"kick-off" with the Montavilla QOV group.
