Quilters from the immediate area got together in early October 2020 to make plans to see how many quilts could be made to be awarded to veterans at the November 11, 2020, American Legion Post #125 Veterans dinner. 

Individuals worked franticly to get 10 quilts done.  Sadly, because of the COVID-19 coronavirus, the dinner was cancelled at the last minute.

As Commander of American Legion Post #125, I have had to make the difficult decision to cancel this year's Veterans' dinner scheduled for November 11, 2020.  This is just one more event having to go by the wayside as a means of protecting our members and beyond from possible exposure to COVID-19.
