Quilt Crafted for Patriot Guard Fundraiser
During this past year, the Pieceful Valley Quilters of Cambridge chose for their project a patriotic star-designed quilt, which they will donate to the Patriot Guard Riders of New York. The Patriot Guard is staffed entirely by volunteers and operates on donations. The quilt will be raffled by the Guard as a fundraiser. The Guard’s main mission is to accompany fallen heroes and their families at funeral services so that there would be no disruption from possible protestors. The Patriot Guard also assists returning veterans with monetary needs and the adjustment back into civilian life when difficult issues surface. The Guard’s Help on the Homefront program is the fundraising and social work arm of the Patriot Guard Riders; 100% of all contributions go towards the needs of the veterans. The Pieceful Valley Quilters are pleased to be participating in this endeavor towards the Guard’s many notable efforts.
The quilt will be on display Wednesday, August 21, Senior Day, at the Washington County Fair in the County Bounty Building. Stop by and view this lovely project and learn more about the Pieceful Valley Quilters and Patriot Guard Riders. Following the fair, the quilt will be given to the Guard for their fundraising raffle.
