May Speaker:

A mother of a Special Forces active duty Marine (Recon- Sniper), Jerilyn truly understand what it means to be “touched by war”. The hidden impact of military conflict is quite real. She will talk about the organization that hand makes patriotic quilts and presents them to veterans.

 

Quilts of Valor presents quilts to service men and women who have served in our military. These quilts are a powerful, tactile, comforting “Thank-You” for our Veterans and Troops. Many Veterans, upon be awarded their QOV, state it was the first time they where ever really thanked for their service.  She fell in love with patriotic fabric and thus began her sewing adventure. Later on, she came across Quilts of Valor and has been sewing for the organization since 2010.

 

Jerilyn is the California State Coordinator for the Quilts of Valor Foundation. She over sees the development of new QOV sewing groups in Silicon Valley and is actively seeking funding specifically for Silicon Valley QOV. The increasing quilt requests require the growth of the organization in terms of new volunteers and securing resources to meet the quilt requests and formation of local small groups.  Jerilyn's host will be Jerry Oliver.  Submitted by Don Rosenbaum

 

April Speaker:

With the continued drought we are experiencing in California, everyone is concerned about our water supply. Barbara Keegan, Director of District 2 for the Santa Clara Valley Water District spoke at the April Luncheon about our region’s water supply situation. Her topics included an overview of the district and how it works with water retailers, an update on drought conditions, water conservation rebate programs and recycled water.  Her talk was very informative and she graciously answered many questions.
