Tri-State veteran wins quilt

A raffle was held by Great River Honor Flight during the Quincy Veterans parade on Saturday, November 10.

The prize was a beautiful, patriotic quilt which had been dropped off at WGEM with the request that it be used to raise money for future missions.

Over 100 tickets were sold and the winner was Frank Mintle,  a Korea War Army veteran who went on Honor Flight #24 back on May 22, 2014.

Amazingly, Mr. Mintle won the quilt because someone bought a ticket and put his name on it.  From the looks of the picture, he seems to be enjoying it.

Thanks to everyone who helped with this fundraiser.
