November Meeting

Our November Salute to Veterans

Dust off your uniform
and polish your brass!

MCRW is honored and delighted to present our
November Salute to Veterans Program.
We welcome a very special Veterans support organization:

Quilts of Valor Foundation began in 2003 with a dream, literally a dream. Founder Catherine Roberts’ son Nat was deployed in Iraq.  According to Catherine: The dream was as vivid as real life. I saw a young man sitting on the side of his bed in the middle of the night, hunched over. The permeating feeling was one of utter despair. I could see his war demons clustered around, dragging him down into an emotional gutter. Then, as if viewing a movie, I saw him in the next scene wrapped in a quilt. His whole demeanor changed from one of despair to one of hope and well-being. The quilt had made this dramatic change.

The model appeared simple: have a volunteer team who would donate their time and materials to make a quilt. From the beginning, Catherine Roberts had definite ideas about standards of excellence for Quilts of Valor. The quilt had to be quilted, not tied, which meant hand or machine quilting. It would be “awarded,” not just passed out, and would say unequivocally, “Thank you for your service, sacrifice and valor in serving our nation.”

And from that dream, grew an extraordinary organization that to date has awarded over 300,000 quilts to veterans across the nation. Please join us on November 15 as we welcome:
