The VFW 6746 and Ladies Auxiliary wanted to do something special for the 22 veterans at the Augusta LakePoint nursing facility in honor of their courageous service to our country.
The Ladies Auxiliary created patriotic flower vases with flags and poppies.
Twelve lap quilts were presented by Ryan Atkinson, a local VFW member on behalf of a family member.
Trudy Jacobson, President of the Ladies Auxiliary, and her mother Nelva Wentz, also made 10 quilts for the veterans.
The veterans deeply appreciated the quilts and special honor.
