Quilts of Valor Nominations Being Accepted

September 12, 2023 - The Shelby County 4-H Heart to Hands Project here in Shelby County participates in a national program called “Quilts of Valor”. These beautiful quilts that are made by the 4-H are given to veterans as a thank you for their service and sacrifice in serving our nation.

US Army Veteran Lucky Gardner is pictured above receiving his quilt during last year's presentation during the poultry festival.

The next quilt ceremony and presentation will be held at this year’s Poultry Festival on October 5, 2023 at 2pm under the big tent. If you have a veteran you would like to nominate please send their name and contact information to Larry Hume, VFW Post 8904 Quartermaster to chiefhume95@gmail.com or call 936-332-0349.
