Cottonwood VFW and the Prairie Quilters served up a nice, tasty breakfast last Sunday. They had several quilts on display. At noon, they presented quilts to Rick Johnson and Joe Reiner. They are certainly deserving of the quilts as they do a lot for the community. Congratulations to Rick, Joe, all VFW members and the quilting ladies. You all do a great job.
