Hanover Veterans Memorial

Karen and I went to Millstone Quilts yesterday to enjoy the lovely outdoor quilt show and sale they have each May. We saw some wonderful quilts and got more ideas for Veteran's quilts, as well as seeing a spectacular Dear Jane Quilt. It was a wonderful time shopping and seeing some friends we hadn't seen in a while.

Karen and I then went on a side trip to see the Veterans Memorial at Hanover Wayside Park. We were overwhelmed with the very impressive memorial to all who have served and died from Hanover County to ensure our freedom. Standing at the memorial made us feel even more honored that the Hanover Veterans Memorial Committee asked Country School Quilters to participate in the wreath laying ceremony on May 27, Memorial Day. The ceremony will be at 9:30 and I don't think it will be long. Just a wonderful opportunity for all of us to show our respect. Speaking of respect, two classmate/friends of Karen have their names carved into the stone on the Vietnam marker - a tearful reminder of the cost of our freedom. Reserved seating available for CSQ - please let Karen know by May 7 if you are attending.
My pictures don't do justice to show you what a special place this is.
