The Annual Hero Day Celebration will be held this year on July 6 prior to the Town fireworks celebration of our nation’s independence. The Mountain Piecemakers Quilt Guild will be honoring local veterans at 4 pm. This year we will have approximately 50 quilts to give to veterans who have been nominated for this honor. Each of this year’s veterans will be mailed a letter from us with the details of the event. This will be the sixth year of our participation, with over 350 quilts being given to veterans from Madison, Mitchell and Yancey counties. The Town Square hosts exhibitors, musicians, and food vendors that include large wall of heroes with the photos and stories of veterans and local heroes. We hope the community will join us in this wonderful celebration to honor our local heroes.
