Did I mention Tennessee???

Yes, we had a good time. It wasn't a picnic, there was a lot of material to cover. New Policies and Procedures, changes from Bare Bones to Standards of Excellence, changes like a Presentation Case is optional, the new Membership Model, changes that will take place as to who and how donations can be raised, reported and reimbursed. Just to mention a little of the 16 hours spent in the conference room. I'm pretty certain much more will be covered in Threads over the next several months. Quilts of Valor will begin a new chapter in 2015.

There were a couple of people there that were kind of recognizable...they need no introduction.

I've got to tell you we had it all together. You have to admit it was organized for a brief shining moment.

Then we sat down and went to work.Well Judie did anyway. 

Yes, we were from all over the place. But with one Mission. 

and as depicted by the photo wall that Mission is in some very good hands. News articles, photos, and a room full of emotion associated with it all.

Not to mention a quilt or two.

I honestly think a good time was had by all. It will take some time to digest it but from my perspective and as a veteran and having the opportunity to mix with this group of people, from Catherine Roberts, Marianne Fons, and each and every man and women that take a few moments out of their day to say Thank You and Welcome Home; QOVF is in some really great hands...talented too.
