Two beautiful quilts were presented to Paula and Christopher Hawkins on Wednesday, Nov 4th at Legion #119. The Hawkins live on Bowen island and came over for the presentation, with their daughter from Vancouver.
The quilts are presented through Quilts of Valour, a national organization, which recognizes military service veterans. Recipients are nominated and a presentation is held at a location determined by the recipients – in this case they had heard about our legion and wanted it here – a true honour!
Quilts are presented when a nomination is received at a time and place agreeable to recipient and the presenter.
The quilts are made by various groups and individuals.
