New River Chapter holds Music Fest for Veterans at the Ashe County Civic Center
May 20, 2023
The New River Chapter held a Music Fest for Veterans at the Ashe County Civic Center on May 20, 2023. The featured music group, Little Horse Band, provided four 30 minute sets of music for attendees who paid $10 to enjoy the show from 1:00 to 4:00 PM. During breaks, three veterans were singled out to receive a "Healing Quilt" that was presented by two members of the Ashe County Piecemakers Quilt Guild to recognize their service.
Shown in the photographic array (above) are some of the veterans and their quilts. The top picture has (L to R): Membership Chair CDR Mik Mikulan, honorary member Earl Inge, Chapter President LCDR Steve Tucker, Personal Affairs Chair and Surviving Spouse Liaison Barbara Sears, Past Chapter President CAPT Doug Ehrhardt, member spouse Bobbie Worley, Board member LCDR James Bumgarner and Treasurer LTC Bob Worley.
Thanks to the Ashe County Piecemakers Quilt Guild for their unwavering support in this memorable day of music and remembrance.
Many of the photographs starting with Little Horse Band have deep blue shades as it wasn't possible to raise the house lighting between sets to get good pictures.
