    :D Harmony...why not join us some Wednesday evening? Since it's getting dark sooner...we meet at the plaza at 5:30pm...but as soon as the time changes, we will retire the flag at 5pm...we'd love, love, love it if you and yours would come on over! :-D

    Is this the same ceremoney that has been done by a gentleman for the past 38 years? I just got an email with his story. He bought the property with the agreement that he would continue doing the ceremony that was started by the seller of the property... Hundreds of people show up for this event weekly. They fly flags of fallen heroes... any war/conflict where an American has given his/her life. A wonderful tribute to our brave men and women who sacrifice their all for this country.

    Great gift. I make lap robes every year for Christmas. Last year I got 34 done. Working on them for this year. Just love what you did for her. Know she will enjoy it for a long time.

    What a wonderful young lady she is and this is Unheard of nowadays with the majority of youth wanting to 'live for themselves'...she truly is a gem! And so are you for making this wonderful quilt, love the creative motif of the yellow ribbon! Great job to both of you!...What a blessing it is for you to have such a wonderful community where you live! I can tell you contribute much to the cause of community!
    Blessings,

    I think that ceremony is in the New Jersey shore area (beach area)...it's the North Eastern part of the USA. And yeah, it's been going on for 38yrs...I hope they continue on long after his passing. A great tradition that needs to be continued all throughout our great nation as every state has it's heros that need to be honored!
    Blessings,

    What a wonderful quilt for a dedicated student!

    Is the pattern available on-line? It looks like something that would be fitting for someone I know...
