There was hardly a dry eye in the room when 14 ‘Quilts of Valour’ were handed out to veterans at the Penticton Legion on Thursday, said past president Ron Bannister.
Volunteers across Canada who are with Quilts of Valour make the quilts and then the hand-stitched blankets are delivered to Legions across the country.
“May the hugs stitched into these quilts give you comfort, strength and love,” said the Quilts of Valour volunteers.
Two soldiers from Edmonton drove to Penticton to hand deliver the quilts last week.
“It was a wonderful day,” said Bannister. “The quilts were well received by everyone.”
Quilts of Valour celebrated its 10 year anniversary in 2019.
