Quilts of Valor At The Princeton Public Library

The Princeton Public Library is hosting a special event Wednesday evening.


Terry Johnson and the Illinois Quilts of Valor will be presenting about 16 quilts to service men and women who have been touched by war.  In 2019, the local Illinois Quilts of Valor group made 130 quilts which is double the amount that they made the previous year.


The National Quilts of Valor Foundation distributed 33,375 quilts to veterans in 2019 and a total of 242,485 since the national group was founded in 2005. 


The event gets underway at 5:30 pm.  You're urged to attend and show your appreciation for the men and women who have served our country when they receive their quilt and also to show your appreciation to those who make the beautiful quilts.  This program is free and all are welcome to attend.
