May 19, 2018

* Shown in the photograph (right) as well as the thumbnails are several of the many veterans that were recognized on May 19th at the Marathon Jam and wrapped in the healing warmth of a quilt made by the Ashe County Piecemakers Quilt Guild.

* The New River Chapter and the Ashe County Piecemakers Quilt Guild were especially honored to make a presentation of one of the quilts to Tina Palmer (shown below right), mother of Ashe County veteran Sgt. Dillon Baldridge, who was killed in Afghanistan and whose memorial service was attended by hundreds of Ashe Countians when held in 2017.
