Jackie Page, assistant administrator at the Veterans Home in Collins, was present at PBQ's September 19 meeting to accept our gift of 15 colorful string quilts. Our member Dorothy Aultman makes and brings in these squares every month, and the (first Tuesday) Children's Quilt Group assembles, quilts, and binds them. Jackie said the residents were always cold and would enjoy these quilts, both for the warmth they provide and for the appreciation they represent for the residents' service to our country.
Pine Belt Quilters meetings are at 9:30 AM the 3rd Wednesday of every month at University Baptist Church, 3200 W. Arlington Loop, Hattiesburg, MS. In addition, there are three activity group meetings per month.
