Quilt of Valor Awards
It was a moving site to behold on November 11th when 10 beautiful red, white and blue quilts were displayed in the Riverside Lodge. Tables lined the room, displaying memorabilia of veterans and over 70 residents and family members gathered in the Riverside Lodge to honor Trutina veterans. At 1 pm ceremony was held that included:
- the ringing of the bells (symbolizing a 21 gun salute),
- 2 minutes of silence (in remembrance of those who have and are serving),
- the playing of taps (the traditional end of day for the miliary) and
- the symbolism of the Missing Man table was read.
These touching moments were followed by Quilt of Valor (QOV) awards. Each of 10 veteran's names were called and as they came to the front of the room where the quilter who pieced their quilt wrapped the quilt around their shoulders and thanked them for their service.
Congratulations to all of the award recipients!
