Remembering vets with quilts



Veteran’s Day is usually a somber time to remember and reflect upon the vital role that veterans have played in making our nation what it is today. This year’s Veteran’s Day ceremony held at Rocky Knoll Health Care Center was an extra special one, thanks to gifts from the Camo Quilt Project. Rocky Knoll currently has over 30 veterans who all received personalized red, white and blue quilts made by volunteers of the Camo Quilt Project. Camo Quilt Project founder Linda Wieck approached the Life Enrichment department at Rocky Knoll to create quilts for all of the facility’s veterans. The Camo Project volunteers went above and beyond and surprised the residents on Veterans Day with their gifts of handmade love and appreciation. The quilts were presented by each creator. It was an emotional day for all who attended. Each quilt has the resident’s name, fabric to match their branch of service, a label with the date it was presented and by whom it was made, and a pocket with a handmade card. Some quilts were presented posthumously to family members.
