Donations will also be accepted for chances on a quilt. The quilt top was made by Judy Burnette and Barton County Attorney Amy Mellor did the quilting of this “roughly queen-sized quilt.” All proceeds from this drawing will go to Golden Plains Quilts of Valor. The group is supported entirely by donations and makes quilts that are presented to local veterans.
Tickets will be available at the Legion during the Luau on July 29, at any Hamburger Feed night (first Mondays of the month), and on Quilts of Valor night (last Friday of every month). The raffle will be held on Nov. 24 following the Quilts of Valor presentation at the American Legion Post 180.
