With Veterans Day just around the corner, men and women who have served the country are being honored with programs, specials, and thanks. Local quilt club, Common Threads Quilters, has been working for nearly half the year in order to present a tangible token of their appreciation to veterans of Kearney County during the Minden High School Veterans Day program on November 13. Fourteen Quilts of Honor will be on display during the program and presented to WWII vets in the county afterward.
“The quilts will be used as the backdrop for the program at the school, but I won’t be presenting them at that time. I’ll deliver them to veterans later,” The Country Store Quilt Shop owner Jane Kuehn said. “This is just a small way that we can give back.”
The idea of providing quilts to veterans is nothing new to the ladies who provided three quilts to veterans last year. Their belief is that a quilt can be useful no matter the age of the veteran and provides a much needed sense of comfort to those who have seen conflict.
