Patriot's Day

Each year on Patriot’s Day (9/11), the students at Oakland Meadow School
in Lawrenceville, GA, with the help of their teachers, makes a Quilt of
Valor to be shared with our warriors.

Oakland Meadow is a public school for children with special needs, which
makes their desire to show their patriotism and to make a difference even
more awesome. 

This is the quilt that they made this year.   

This is the third year they have made and presented us with a quilt.  For the
first time they asked if they could give this quilt to the father of one
of their students.  He is a veteran of Iraqi Freedom and lost a leg in
service to his country. 

 If you don’t think there were a few tears that morning....  I was also delighted to see all police and firefighters who attended.  They brought their motorcycles and fire trucks and after the
program, the children had a fabulous time checking it all out!
