REDMOND, OR -- The Redmond Airport will hold a special ceremony to unveil a hand-stitched American Flag quilt. Airport Director Zach Bass says the 100" x 60" quilt had quite a journey from concept to wall art. "Eighteen area women decided to put this quilt together and they donated it to the Central Oregon Veterans Ranch for an auction. All the proceeds for the auction went back to the Ranch, and then the individual that won it, donated it to the airport for display."
 
The highest bidder, Debbie Seibert, wanted the quilt to be seen by everyone. Bass tells KBND News, "She told us it had been on display in varying places around Central Oregon and she'd thought about the airport, a central hub for transportation." He adds, "We're just excited to have it and display it for everyone to see. We wanted to, from all of us and as a veteran myself, to thank those ladies and Central Oregon Veterans Ranch for donating it to us." 
 
The quilt unveiling takes place at 9:30 a.m. Thursday in the terminal building.
