This weekend Jan and I attended the Patriot Guard Riders national Gathering Of The Guard in Steelville, MO. Jan made a quilt especially for the event to be raffled off to raise funds for the PGR Help On The Homefront program. HOTH provides funds for the needs of families whos heroe is deployed and they are in need. HOTH has provided utility payments, water heater replacement, air conditioner replacement and even furnace replacement for a needy military family. The drawing for the quilt will be Veteran's day in November. Tickets are $2 each, or 3 for $5. Here are a few photos from the event.
The gentleman with me in the middle photo is Ben Franklin, 7th generation grandson of Ben Franklin.
