Four Brothers from Warren Freemasons Lodge #4 in Potosi, Wisconsin received “Quilts of Valor” at their Lodge meeting on Thursday, April 6th, 2023. The mission of Quilts of Valor is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing quilts.
The quilts presented were absolutely beautiful, containing exquisite patterns of red, white, and blue. Each quilt is hand-made, so all four were very different in their styles. Some contained images of bald eagles and the U.S. Constitution – others had stars and stripes. But all had the same purpose: to thank a veteran or service member and provide them with comfort, warmth, and love.
