Quilts Of Valor Presentation
Memorial Day is a reminder that our freedoms we enjoy in America aren’t free, but made possible by the ultimate sacrifice made by our military soldiers who died in service of our country.  Join in honoring those who have served our country, and come back home as the Decorah Quilts Of Valor #541 will present seven local Veterans with their own Quilts of Valor Monday, May 27, at 2 p.m. at the All-Vets Club in Decorah.  To nominate a veteran or service member or any veteran wishing to be presented with a Quilts Of Valor quilt, call Julie Lukes at 563 562-3511.
