BALDWIN — Sometimes a quilt is a fun craft project. Other times it can be a symbol of thanks and appreciation. The one presented to 21-year U.S. Army veteran Kevin McCleary on Nov. 19 was the latter.
McCleary was given the quilt by members of the Old Jail Quilters, a quilting club based out of Big Rapids as part of the national Quilts of Valor program. The program presents quilts to wounded service members and veterans of the armed forces.
