Presentation in Kamiah ID
Yesterday, Memorial Day, 2012, was one of the most incredible days of my
life. The Central Idaho Quilters Guild worked really hard over the last 6
months in order to meet a goal of presenting at least 35 quilts. We had
only 2 we were not able to present, and one of those was in rehabilitation
and unable to attend. We had one active duty grand daughter (US Navy)
present to her grandfather who fought in Korea. One grandfather accepted
for his grand daughter who is an active duty Army Major, Black Hawk
commander. The tears flowed, we laughed from the bottom of our being, and
saw a tremendous bonding of our community. There were almost 200 people in
attendance, all interactive and cheering our veterans/soldiers on!! There
are no further words I can say to describe the tremendous satisfaction,
joy, sadness for those we lost, and the overwhelming pride we have for OUR
combat veterans. Just awesome!!
Thanks to a very special lady we invited to join us. Sharon Ledbetter, our
regional coordinator. What a gal!! We haven't known each other long, but
there are people that we instantly love and feel we have known forever. I
feel like I have another sister. I just now found her!!!
God bless everyone that had a hand in our presentations. What a great
group to be associated with!!
And now what you all are waiting for - the pictures!!
