  • Quilts of Valor, November 15, 2018 The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation (QOV) is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor. The Foundation began in 2003 with the intended message of “Thank you for your service, sacrifice, and valor” in serving our nation in combat. LeeAnn Mortensen helps coordinate the local QOV program. She will speak about this philanthropic organization and coordinate a night in which guild members may help make blocks or even an entire quilt. Contact: LeeAnn Mortensen.
