The veterans then selected their quilts from photos the guild provided. The oldest veteran was Jesse Otto, who served in World War II. The younger veterans were from Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Free- dom and one veteran, John Bower, from the Viet Nam war. Two of the quilts were a group project of the Kountry Quilters guild. Blocks for these two quilts were made by individual guild members, under the direction of I the two committee leaders. One of these quilts, "Ameri- cana," was made with reproductions of Civil War and Revolutionary War fab- rics; the other, "Patriotic Sampler," was made with modem red, white and blue fabrics. Dorothy Alexander was in charge of setting the reproduction blocks into a quilt, and Sandy Larkey was in charge of the modem one, These quilts received yibbons at both the Nuckolls County Fair and the Nebraska State Fair. Other quilts were made by indi- vidual members of the guild. Nancy Sauvageau, who owns a long-arm quilt- ing machine, made a whole-cloth quilt (one made of on large piece of fabric, With borders), using a quilting pattern designed by the Long-Arm Quilts As- sociation especially for Quilts of Valor. She used red thread on a white back- ground to show off the pattern, which was composed c f drawings of various arks. This quilt was s work that her mother :ged to see, so Nancy 't of the quilt to also be mother. Carlos Garcia chose this quilt, and auched by the story. American lan& the iastofNancy had been privih considers the gil a memorial to he of Grand Island was especially I result of a "block of the month" pro- gram at the Sew Country quilt shop in Belleville. Others were projects for or with the Kountry Quilters guild. Sev- eral of her quilts also won ribbons at both thecounty and State fairs. Sandy Larkey made a "Star Spangled Quilt," with five point stars pieced from patriotic themed fabrics appliqued onto a white background, interspersed with machine embroidered blocks of red or blue. The backing for this quilt was a red flannel also printed with stars. This was in addition tothe "Patriotic Samoler" shedirected for the guild members to make. Each quilt had a label on the back, with maker's name(s), and the date, with a space of the veterans recipient's name to be added, so people would know this quilt was "made especially for you." Eleanor Stiles assisted the veterans to sign the label with a special quilter' s pen for a permanent record of the recipient, Many of the recipientS expressed the sentiment that they were emotion- ally touched by the gift of so much time and labor as went into the quilts. Guild members made it plain that the quilts were intended for use, not to be hung on the wall for display. One veteran, Cassi Blackmon, said she didn't know if she could follow that rule, saying that the quilt she received was "price- less." Others said they would defi- nitely use theirs as guild members had said to "consider these quilts as a big hug you can use any time you need one." This is the third year the Kountry Quilters Quilt Guild has been involved in the Quilts of Valor project. It seems each year the ceremony is better than last year, more quilts, more veterans, more fun! The guild invites local quilters to join them in this project. The guild meets monthly, every second Thurs- day, 7 p.m., at the Church of Christ in Superior. Visitors are welcome.

Annual Spirit of Christmas fund raising money The youth of St. Joseph's Catholic Church are planning a noontime soup luncheon for Sunday to benefit the Spirit of Christmas Fund. The Spirit of Christ- mas fund was created to help the needy of Nuckolls County. Each year, funds are given to persons of the County for a variety of expenses and each year, the funds need to be replenished. Those interested in accessing the fund are encouraged to contact Jana Chase at Mid Nebraska Community Action at 410 North Central Ave, Su- perior. Generally, government pro- grams or grants are pursued as the first possible source of relief for a family. However, it is well known that many people either jus[barely miss "qualify- ing" for a program or their need is not "covered" by the program. It is at times like these that the Spirit of Christmas fund is cal led upon to be used to relieve some of the financial stress of their situation. The Spirit of Christmas fund is used all year long and not only at Christmas time. It was in the "splrit' of Christmas, the spirit of giving, that the fUnd was envisioned as a help for the needy of Nuckolls County. The Spirit of Christmas fund is held at the Commercial Bank in Nelson; the Knights of Columbus are the guardians of the account. All proceeds from the fundraiser are given to the fund and any needy resident of Nuckolls County is eligible to receive assistance from the fund. i i i i i Thank You We at the Westerner.Motel would like to send a big "Thank You" to all the v01unl ,=(firemen and their families who stayed w!th us.
