Lakeland, Fla. (November 17, 2015) – Cypress Lakes Auxiliary, an organization led by the residents of Cypress Lakes 55+ Community in Lakeland will host a Veterans Flag Folding Ceremony on the evening of Thursday, November 18 with attendance by Cypress Lakes Honor Guard and special guest, Mary Peter.
Ms. Peter is a nationally-recognized, certified Master Dog Trainer who heads K9 Partners for Patriots. Cypress Lakes Veterans Auxiliary President, Barbara Hagen, will present Ms. Peter with a “Quilt of Valor,” which was quilted and donated by Cypress Lakes’ resident, Dorothy Bahrenburg.
“Quilts of Valor” are one-of-a-kind quilts stitched with love, prayers and healing thoughts. Our troops, who have been touched by war, are awarded this tangible token of appreciation that unequivocally says, “Thank you for your service, sacrifice and valor.”
In addition to the “Quilt of Valor,” the Cypress Lakes Veterans Association and Auxiliary presented Ms. Peter with a $1,500 donation in support of K9 Partners for Patriots during the November 18th event at Cypress Lakes:
