Webb to speak at breakfast

TROY — Jane Webb of The ‘67 Quilters will be the speaker at the monthly veterans’ breakfast at the Miami Valley Veterans Museum at 9 a.m. Nov. 1, at 107 W. Main St., Troy.

In addition, the Piqua-Lewis Boyer Daughters of the American Revolution will be serving breakfast.

Webb wanted to honor her brothers and all veterans, in particular one from the class of 1967. She recruited a few high school friends. Then, sitting at K’s, Webb welcomed a large number of quilters with willing hearts and hands to bring her dream to life. Word spread to many classmates with a heartfelt desire to be part of a very special tribute. Classmates from all over showed up. The common factors were the veterans and expressing respect and gratitude for sacrifices made during the Vietnam era.

An elevator is available. For more information, call 332-8852 or visit
