To the Editor:
The Lincoln County Quilters would like to say thank you for the wonderful article you published in The Lincoln County News about the Quilts of Valor presentation at the American Legion Hall in Damariscotta on April 7.
We were delighted to be able to see the smiles of our Lincoln County veterans of war displayed so well in your publication as they received the quilts. It was a memorable event as we honored the men and women in the U.S. military who have sacrificed so much on behalf of all of us.
We are also very grateful to the men and women of the Wells-Hussey American Legion Post 42 for allowing us to use their facilities, and for all of their invaluable assistance in making the presentation a success.
As a reminder to others in our community, the Quilts of Valor created by our organization are donated to U.S. veterans of wars. We are working hard to locate as many WWII, Vietnam, and Korean war veterans as possible to receive a quilt. Later, we hope to present quilts to the younger veterans in our midst.
The criteria to be a recipient of a Quilt of Valor (by Lincoln County Quilters) is as follows:
• Must be a U.S. Military Service Veteran
• Must have served in a war
• Must have served overseas in a combat-related area
• Must reside in Lincoln County
If any LCN reader knows of someone from WWII, the Korean War, or Vietnam War who fits the criteria above and would like to receive a quilt, please have them contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
