Myrtle Beach Harley-Davidson will host a Quilts of Valor presentation this Friday, November 8th, at 1pm at the main dealership located south of the Myrtle Beach State Park on Hwy 17 Business (4710 HWY 17 S).
The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover all combat service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor. During the presentation nine (9) veterans from around the area will receive a Quilt of Valor, making this the largest group presentation the Myrtle Beach chapter has hosted to date.
“We are extremely excited for this opportunity to create a special presentation for this group of veterans,” explained Quilts of Valor volunteer, Joan Wobbleton. “Demand for our quilts has risen since receiving national attention on the NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams and this event helps us not only fulfill our mission but to also spread the word of our services on a local level.”
This event also serves as a kick off for Military Appreciation Month which will be celebrated throughout November at Harley-Davidson Dealerships across the nation. Locally Myrtle Beach Harley-Davidson will host a Marine Birthday Celebration this Sunday, November 10th from 11am- 4pm with cake and t-shirt giveaways (while supplies last).
A large banner is also on display in the store for the public to sign and show their support all month, participants will receive a commemorative sticker and the banner will be donated to a local veterans group.
