Thanks to the excellent supply of handmade patriotic quilts donated by the Clinton County Quilters, veterans all around the county are receiving one of these quilts and a heartfelt, “Thank you for your service” from their fellow veterans.

Members of the committee are traveling the highways, streets and roads seeking out Clinton County’s heroes to present this small token of appreciation for their service to our country.

The annual Clinton County Veterans Day Program will take place at 10 a.m. Friday, November 11 at the Veterans Memorial at the corner of E. Main and S. Walnut streets, Wilmington.

For more upcoming local events honoring veterans, see the News Journal’s Upcoming Events calendar.
