Tangible reminders of appreciation and gratitude

Three members of Corriher Grange have received Quilts of Valor as tangible reminders of appreciation and gratitude for their service, sacrifice and valor during WWII. Philip Sloop received his Quilt of Valor on the occasion of his 100 birthday in December 2016. Hoke Karriker received his Quilt of Valor at a Quilt of Valor Presentation held on April 26 at JM Robinson High School in Concord. Paul Campbell received his Quilt of Valor at the June 3 meeting of Corriher Grange.

The Quilts of Valor organization was started in 2003 by Catherine Roberts, whose son was serving in Iraq as a Humvee gunner. Their mission is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor, thanking them for their service, sacrifice and valor. Veterans from all conflicts are eligible to receive a QOV. For more information on this organization and to learn how you can help,  visit www.qovf.org

The local chapter of QOV is Creative Piecers. Started in 2015 by a small group of women quilters, it has grown to more than 21 members who meet on the fourth Wednesday of each month at We’re Sew Creative Quilt Shop in Concord. Award ceremonies have been held twice yearly; individual requests are accommodated if possible.
