Morrison Rotarian Suellen Girard presented an amazing program on October 7. She is a volunteer quilt maker for the Quilts of Valor, which was founded in 2003 to supply service members and veterans touched by war with the comfort and healing of a quilt. As of March 2020 this organization has provided over 250,000 quilts to veterans. Many of these soldiers have suffered some type of physical or psychological wound and a quilt can do so much to help them heal.  Even if you can’t sew a quilt you can donate funds to Quilts of Valor, or you can donate fabric to a locate QOV group.
Suellen pours her heart and soul into each quilt she makes because she knows she can honor the military service her dad gave to his country. She displayed 4 quilts she made that would easily bring several hundred dollars if she were to sell them. We want to thank Suellen for her dedication and the investment she makes to comfort our veterans and their families. This certainly fulfills the Rotary motto of “Service about Self”.
