Two Concordia veterans were among the 12 gifted with a Quilt of Valor during an event held Tuesday, Nov. 20, in Higginsville. The evening was sponsored by the Partners in Patchwork Quilt Guild. This is the fifth year the guild has sponsored this project.
The evening began with the presentation of colors and the Pledge of Allegiance led by Boy Scout Troop No. 415. A large number of family members and friends of each of the veterans was in attendance. Each veteran had the opportunity to share a few words about their service and a list of their honors and medals were read as they were on stage.
During the program, Donnie Fiene (top) was presented a quilt made by Carol Inman, and Stan Krzesinski (bottom) was presented a quilt made by Mary Krause Hughes.
