“From the very beginning, our group knew we wanted the quilt to be an educational piece – both for St Augustine history and the art of quilting,” Marshall says. “It has been a very exciting project to work on and we have been filmed to appear in a PBS documentary on history being preserved through quilting.”
K9s for Warriors – Members of the Ponte Vedra Beach office, Fran Gorman, Sarah Hewett, Karen Sheltz, Frankie Townsend and Deb Moulin, volunteer at K9s for Warriors in Ponte Vedra Beach. The nonprofit organization trains and gives service canines to veterans as a way to help them return to civilian life. The team from Prudential Network Realty assists K9s for Warriors with the socialization of service dogs. The organization has four two-hour shifts daily and needs three volunteers per shift to help with the dogs.
“There are various ways you can support this organization and we chose ‘playing’ with the dogs,” Moulin says. “These are big dogs who love to run and play and the organization has a large fenced area in which to exercise the dogs.”
K9s for Warriors offers numerous volunteer opportunities. More information is available at www.k9sforwarriors.org.
