On Friday, November 3rd, 15 veterans who live on the Park Place Campus received personalized quilts from the Quilts of Valor Foundation, a national program that gifts veterans with comforting and healing quilts.  The quilts were lovingly made by Hidden Quilts of Platteville, and the presentation was organized by Platteville local Karen Demaree, who is very involved in the Quilts of Valor program.  The local VFW and students from UW-Platteville participated in the event, and the Platteville Journal and Channel 3000 covered it as well.  Each veteran thoroughly appreciated their gift and would like to extend a thank you to all who spent their time and energy making the quilts, and to all who made the program possible.  It was a beautiful and moving event.  Many heartfelt thanks to all veterans everywhere – your dedication and bravery is an inspiration to us all.  To view pictures, please click on the web album.
