Honor Flight Blankets
Representatives from the Honor Flight Program attended the meeting to collect Honor Flight Quilts made by members. Members of the Milford Valley Quilters’ Guild display their handmade quilts that they donated to veterans. Each veteran received a quilt from volunteers Michael and Matthew Mitchell, front row, as they arrived at Stewart Air Force Base on Oct. 6 for their Honor Flight trip to Washington, D.C. This year was the seventh year that the Quilters have donated and donated 63 patriotic-themed lap quilts and 10 crocheted blankets for the World War II and Korean War veterans.
