Military Strippers II

“Military Strippers”
After finishing all the Military Quilts the “Strippers” were ready to delivery them!
It was two very rewarding days taking our gifts of thanks to the Crocker Senior Center and the Sunset Nursing home.
The veterans in Crocker invited us to join them in lunch and pleasant conversation.
Our quilts can not totally express our thanks to those men and women who served so we can enjoy our freedom in this wonderful county.   

 These are some of the many quilts we gave out that day.
