Carolyn Jennings the local representative for Quilts of Valour gave a presentation about this program that provides quilts to injured members of the Canadian Armed forces. Injuries are not always visible, includes PTSD. Quilts donated do not need to be in "patriotic colours" all blocks and colours may be used. If you would like more information, have a quilt or quilt blocks you would like to donate or if you are aware of a veteran that may warrant receiving a quilt you can get in touch with Carolyn at firstname.lastname@example.org
