Bill and Wanda Wason display quilt

Wanda and Bill Wason display a quilt Bill designed. Bill also read a poem called "The Rugged Old Flag," originally penned by the late Johnny Cash.

The popular adage says, “Freedom isn’t free” and so the S&B Quilters Guild wanted to show their appreciation for veterans who have served our country.

A brunch meal and the gift of a handmade quilt were offered to veterans during a special program to honor veterans at Memorial Hall in Hotchkiss Saturday.
