Quilt headed to service member

Rushville Republican

---- — The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is very proud of the recent volunteer project.

Three RSVP ladies, Beverly Potts, Norella Wilson and Wanda West, completed a quilt of valor that is now on its way to a combat service member. The mission of the Quilt of Valor Foundation is to cover all combat service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.

The ladies have created a beautiful quilt using their own resources and it has been shipped by Carolyn’s Quilting Studio in Rushville at no charge to an unknown destination for a much deserving member of the armed forces.

These ladies have shown initiative, dedication, and commitment to a volunteer project demonstrating the very essence of a volunteer.

RSVP, a national organization, helps everyone over age 55 to serve and participate in their community. Volunteers meet the needs of others while enjoying a high quality experience that enriches their own lives. RSVP is active in Hancock, Henry and Rush counties.

Contact the RSVP Coordinator Cindy Alexander at 765-529-4403 for more information.
