The Drew Webster Post 39 American Legion is auctioning a queen-size quilt in a raffle through the Pomeroy Christmas Parade. Tickets can be purchased through the Auxiliary and are $1 each, or $6 for five tickets. Pictured are JoAnne Newsome, of Drew Webster Post 39 Ladies Auxiliary and Jack Lewis, of Drew Webster Post 39, holding up the quilt being raffled around Christmas. The drawing will take place after the parade. All proceeds will go to Operation Comfort Warriors, which helps to comfort ill, wounded or injured veterans with comfort items not provided by the government. The quilt was created by Joanne Vaughan. The red on the quilt is meant to represent poppies in Flanders Field, which was written about in a poem by John McCrae during World War I and honors the blood shed by those who fought in the field — the same field from which the poppies grew. Drew Webster reads the poem during events honoring veterans.
