Description: The Stauth Memorial Museum of Montezuma, KS will be hosting a very special exhibit to display quilts that have a patriotic theme or are made from the patriotic colors of Red, White, and Blue. This is 2 exhibits in 1 display. The Quilts of Patriotism portion of the exhibit will be personal patriotic quilts that will be loaned for display in the exhibit. The Quilts of Valor portion of the exhibit will be patriotic quilts that are on display for the exhibit and then donated into the Quilts of Valor ® Foundation (QOVF). These will be presented to area military service members and veterans who have been touched by war at a presentation ceremony on Sunday, November 12th. A Quilts of Valor quilt is a lifetime award to say thank you for your service, sacrifice and valor in serving our nation. These quilts are meant to be lifelong heirlooms and all created by (Kansas) volunteers.

If you know of any service men or women who should receive a Quilts of Valor, please contact the Quilts of Valor ® Foundation website at www.qovf.org for more information or to submit a request
