The Veterans Tribute Committee is pleased to announce Cyd Bianchi of Shobonier was the winner of the special “Eagle Quilt” made by the Lakeside Quilters. Bianchi’s name was drawn during the reception following the dedication ceremony for the Tribute on June 6.
The Tribute Committee raised more than $7,000 towards the project, which will honor area veterans, both living and deceased, located on the main campus of Kaskaskia College. The Tribute Committee would like to thank everyone who purchased tickets for the raffle and announce that phase two of the project, which will include the construction of three additional walls, will begin very shortly. The committee would also like to ask the public for their help in ensuring the names of area veterans are collected as they move forward. Those interested in the project can go online at www.veteranstributeatkc.com for more information or submit names for the Tribute.
