Butler County Piecemakers Quilts of Valor

As part of the Butler County Chapter NSDAR's Memorial Day Program the Butler County Piecemakers presented 15 Quilts of Valor.

The Butler County Piecemakers started with Darlene Scott who wanted to honor her father a WWII Veteran, later Jennifer Odle joined her to honor her brother Larry Jones an Army retiree.

"Along the way others have helped in numerous ways.  Some sew the kits that Darlene puts together, some donate monetarily, (they operate on donations only) and others open their homes for us to join together and sew," said Odle.
