Elmer Rinard to be presented with a Quilt of Valor

 


Members of the community are invited to a drop-in reception at the Nazarene Church on Wednesday, December 19, from 1 to 3 p.m. to honor Elmer Rinard for serving our nation in WWII. His quilt will be presented at 1:30 p.m. by Lt. Col. Emily Tate (retired USAF) from Spokane.

The Quilts of Valor (QOV) Foundation began in 2003. The mission of the QOV Foundation is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing quilts of valor. Over 200,000 quilts have since been presented in all 50 states.

A quilt of valor is sewn by volunteer teams nationwide who donated their time and materials to make an unique quilt.

These are then presented to veterans to convey a heartfelt thank you for their service, sacrifice, and valor in serving our nation in times of combat.

Any veteran can be nominated to receive a QOV on their website at http://www.qovf.org where you can learn more about this non-profit foundation.
