PENDLETON — People affiliated with Quilts of Valor will meet next weekend in Pendleton.

The program creates and provides quilts to service members and veterans touched by war. Founded in 2003, the project idea came to Catherine Roberts in a dream. The first quilt was presented in November 2003 at Walter Reed Army Medical Center to a young soldier from Minnesota who had lost his leg in Iraq.

The Quilts of Valor gathering is Saturday, Aug. 17 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Heritage Station Museum, 108 S.W. Frazer Ave., Pendleton. Anyone that is interested in the project is invited to stop by and learn more.
