Richard Hollermann presented with Quilt of Valor
How do you begin to say “thank you” to a veteran—especially one who has sacrificed so much during service to the nation? If you’re a quilter like Charlotte Norlien, you begin with a piece of fabric.
On Feb. 16, Norlien presented Richard Hollermann, a Vietnam veteran who lives south of Farwell, with a Quilt of Valor. The quilt was Norlien’s way of offering comfort, healing and sincere gratitude to a veteran touched by war.
Norlien said she had seen a PBS program about the Quilts of Valor Foundation and was determined to make a quilt for a local veteran—the Fons and Porter quilt pattern, in particular.
