Community Spirit

The Salt Lake Tribune recently had an article in it about Jackie Bulloch and how she got her community involved in making quilts for their deployed soldiers.  It all started because of a news story about a woman in Wisconsin who started "Camo Quilts.  Jackie decided that she could make four of these camouflage-fabric quilts for her "boys".  By the time this group got finished, they made 474 quilts!!  That meant that each member of the 222nd Field Artillery Battalion, also known as the "Triple Deuce", received a "camo quilt". 

The entire article can be read at Camo Quilts .  It's amazing what can be accomplished when people work together.
