On Saturday morning, September 27, four quilters, Susan Derring, Pam Boozan, Becky Meekoff and Jane Oglesby, set off for a Marine Corps Beach Party.
We arrived at Camp Pendleton at 9:30 am and were greeted by the Marines.
They carried our 122 quilts to our assigned booth. We loved the help! Thankfully, we had shade, tables, chairs and a sea breeze.
We were also offered more food than we could imagine consuming. Entertainment was non-stop. And, ladies, you have not been entertained until you have watched a marine tug-of-war!
But the best part was handing out quilts to our marine families. So many stories and so many thanks.
It is such a joy to be the final link in our philanthropy efforts.
By 2:30, all quilts were gone, and we made our way home. Can’t wait to do it again next year.
