OpKid News: Norwich Record and Quilt-A-Thon 2006

Thank you Norwich Record, the alumni publication of Norwich University, for kindly spreading the word of Operation Kid Comfort in your current Summer 2006 issue. We are more than pleased with the story, and expect the exposure can only enhance our work here at Fort Bragg, where many Norwich graduates now make their home, as well at other installations now offering the Operation Kid Comfort program.

Writer Cherryl Jensen wrote some wonderful words about Operation Kid Comfort, and our own resident photographer, Peg Mikol, took a great photo.

If you know a publication that would be interested in including the Operation Kid Comfort story, please don't hesitate to let us know. We love to talk about our fabulous volunteers, sponsors and, of course, our kids.

And it's almost time
for the Operation Kid Comfort Third Annual QUILT-A-THON. Can you believe its been three years!

On Make-A-Difference Day, October 28, 2006, Operation
Kid Comfort will celebrate its third anniversary with a day of quilting and community. We spend the scanning, editing, printing, sewing and quilting. Add in some good food and music and you've got a real good time!

If you've attended any of our previous quilt-a-thons, or any of our workshops, then you know how much fun we have
