Erika Boss, center, who lives in Cornelius, presented a handmade quilt Friday night, Dec. 10, to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall at 9413 Old Statesville Road in Charlotte. Her husband, Heinz, right, and son, Marcel, helped hang the quilt in the hall before the Friday night bingo began. “I just wanted to do something for them,” Boss said. “We wouldn’t be here if not for all of them.”
