Quilts of Valor FoundationHappy Valley Quilts of Valor, a local quilting group affiliated with the Quilts of Valor Foundation is proud to honor our service members and veterans at the 2016 Central PA Fourth Fest.

Numerous quilts will be displayed on the Happy Valley Quilts of Valor float in the Independence Day Parade and at the QOV Booth on Curtain Ave during Fourth Fest. At the booth, visitors can make a donation and sign a quilt block. These blocks will be sewn into quilts that will be awarded to local veterans at future events.

The highlight of our day will be to honor several local veterans with their Quilts of Valor at the Quilts of Valor Awards Ceremony. Please join us to recognize these veterans for their service, sacrifice and commitment to our freedom.

The mission of our non-profit organization is to provide comfort and healing Quilts of Valor to service members and veterans touched by war. Our central PA group of 39 members started quilting together in 2015. Since then we have been able to award quilts to local veterans from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, and Iraq at the American Legion Post 779 in Centre Hall, local churches and most recently at Memorial Day Ceremonies in Boalsburg and Beechcreek, PA.
