Third graders in Miss Pinnow’s class have been learning to sew. Each student created a quilt square and Pinnow put them together to make two “Quilts of Honor.’' Two area veterans, selected by the local VFW, came to share stories from their time of service. After a brief interview the third grade students presented each veteran with a quilt.
