Veterans Tribute to Raffle Patriotic Quilt
A group of friends have presented patriotic quilt for the Veterans Tribute committee to raffle to raise funds for the Tribute. Judy Trader of Kinmundy, Lael Snyder of Salem, Linda Clevenber of Mt. Vernon and Pat Herrin of Kell presented the quilt, “The Flight of the Eagle,” to Tribute Committee members Dr. Dee Boswell, Jim Beasley, Dr. Jim Underwood and Travis Henson at Kaskaskia College. Proceeds from the raffle will be used to help finalize the first phase of the Tribute project. The group has prepared other quilts for veterans’ causes.
“We extend our most profound appreciation to this group of quilters as well as the many hundreds of others who are stepping forward in making the Veterans Tribute at Kaskaskia College the most unique tribute to our veterans,” said Beasley. Details of the quilt raffle will be announced in the near future.
