Adams County 4-Hers are again participating with the Quilts of Valor in 2020. If interested please contact the Extension Office. In 2015, Iowa Public Television came to York, Nebraska, and Nebraska State Fair to videotape Nebraska 4-Hers who were working with Quilts of Valor. Several of our 4-Hers, leaders, and Extension Staff were interviewed and showcased. The 100+ minute documentary was shown in Iowa the first part of December 2015. In Nebraska, the Quilts of Valor II Documentary was shown 1st part of March, 2016 on NET(1) and NET Create (3). We will be showcasing the 2020 participating Counties and the 4-Hers who made the Quilts at the Nebraska State Fair on Date TBA in the 4-H Building. Come join us and see all the work that these 4-Hers have done thru the past year.
