Atlantic County Veterans Museum at Estell Manor
Visitors to the museum saw a display of 660 American flags on the property’s front lawn
 from mid-October through Veterans Day.
The display was provided by “Flags for Forgotten Soldiers” to promote greater awareness
of the alarming number of suicides among our veterans.

There are currently an average of 22 veteran suicides a day in the U.S.,
 or 660 per month.

Welcome to South Jersey Quilts Of Valor’s newest member – 16 year old Zachary Cadwell, center, from Gilbertsville, PA! He attended a recent SJQOV sewing workshop, held at the Seaville Fire Social Hall, Friday, Aug. 3rd, and completed his first Quilt Of Valor quilt top. He has been sewing pillowcases for several years with Ryan’s Case For Smiles (for kids in hospitals) under the direction of his great Aunt, Sharon Cadwell left, who is the South Jersey coordinator for Ryan’s Case For Smiles. He received quilt instructions from SJQOV member, Jane Pszczolkowski, right, in putting together the squares for his first quilt, pictured here. Sharon and Jane are also members of South Shore Stitchers Quilt Guild.
