2016 Beale AFB Baby Shower

Leave a comment

Thanks to the dedicated Blanketeers of the Project Linus Nevada County Chapter, the 2016 Beale Air Force Base Baby Shower was a success!  Here’s a photo and comments from the Beale coordinator:

We had 113 people in attendance at the Baby Shower and each family
was blessed with a quilt from you all!  I have attached the group photo of
the families with their blankets.

You all are such a wonderful group and our Airmen and their families are continually blessed by you! Thank you for all you do!

Last year, some of you were able to recognize your blankets in the photo.  This year, we have more smiling faces to remind us of why we do what we do.

Thank you to all who donated blankets for this event.  We’ll be participating next August, so keep those blankets coming!

This past August, our Project Linus Chapter donated blankets to the Beale Air Force Base for their annual Baby Shower.  This shower was for military families who are expecting a child or had a baby within the last year.  Our Nevada County Chapter and the Yolo County Chapter of Project Linus participated in this event, providing blankets for this special event.  Here’s a photo from the event:



Coordinators of the event thanked us many, many times for our support and participation.  Thanks to all of the Blanketeers who went the extra mile to help us support this special occasion!
