As the season of autumn comes to an end and the cold of winter approaches, may the blessings of the holiday season be more than enough to warm your heart and sustain you through the long winter days ahead.

     QOVs have warmed the hearts, souls, and physical beings of more than 150,000 honored veterans. This is an amazing accomplishment of love, respect, and honor, and a humbling and empowering organization with which we all get to be connected! I invite you to share your ideas on how we can make National Sew Day on February 4, 2017 a continuation of the QOVF mission and a celebration that will be talked about all year!

     As you and your groups make plans to gather together, please visit the QOVF website to register. If you have National Sew Day ideas, I’d love to hear from you. I will be sharing ideas and details in the January newsletter on how we can build on what began in 2014.
