Kohmetschers awarded Quilts of Valor
November 17, 2022
Dick and Marge Kohmetscher of Lawrence were awarded Quilts of Valor in a moving presentation during the Lawrence-Nelson High School program honoring veterans held on November 10.
The five girls who designed and constructed the quilts under the supervision of Kay Theer, their 4-H leader, voted unanimously to award a quilt to Army Veteran Dick Kohmetscher in recognition of his service to God, country, community and family. Since they had made two quilts, the girls decided that Marge, also a veteran as well as being a partner in Dick's endeavors, should receive a quilt of her own.
