Pine River group makes Quilts of Valor


In an effort to give back, a group in Pine River has joined in a national effort to make quilts for injured veterans.

Bunny Witt of Pine River organized the group in October, using word of mouth to draw in Carol Bushee, Carol Johnson, Betty Kangis and Barb Brezinsky to make Quilts of Valor (QOV).

“We wanted to get a group going in Pine River. We wanted to volunteer,” Bushee said.
