The CEOS Quilt & Fiber Club was honored to donate their time and skills to make Quilts of Valor that were awarded to three Wayne Co. Veterans on April 19, 2022. A Quilt of Valor® (QOV) is a quality, handmade quilt that is machine or hand quilted. It is awarded to a Service Member or Veteran who has been touched by war.
