Sending Warmth To Vets One Quilt At A Time
Mary Stewart, owner of The Quilted Fish in Algoma, WI has been working with some of her customers to make quilts that will be donated to the High Ground Veterans Group in Neillsville, WI., a 155 acre manned veterans memorial park that pays tribute to the dead, and honors the survivors, their service, and their sacrifices.
Mary states, “I like people to get things during the holidays, so they aren’t alone. They know someone cares about them.”
Stewart got hooked up with High Ground Veterans Group through local, retired practitioner, Bonnie Johnson. The quilts are given in honor of Johnson’s husband Jim, who was a 4-year Vietnam Vet. High Ground recognizes veterans from all wars.
The Quilted Fish has a Quilt Challenge Group that also delivered a donation to the Green Bay VA.
