New Volunteer

Dean Lund used to do long-arm quilting for us, but his health would no longer allow that. He called to me say he was bored and could he make quilt tops for us. Keep in mind that he was 90 in Jan (and a former teacher).

Dean Lund  then I got this email. Isn’t that cool!

Hi Barbara- I am Dean’s daughter, Jodi. I posted a picture of my dad sewing Quilts of Valor on Facebook and got hundreds of positive responses on him and your organization. Thanks for giving him a purpose!!!

Since mid-July he has already made 5 tops and I gave him more kits to work with this week.

7/16/18 Quilt in El Cajon for a Veteran whos nickname on facebook is Lone Wolf.

7/19 Busy day: started the morning by presenting quilts to Veterans in a nursing home, then made many more quilts and a Veteran gets a quilt with Mrs USA helping, then a volunteer’s family reunion with more quilts presented.
