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
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!
