John Morris posted a topic in The Veterans Corner and Causes ForumThe cause As you know we had a wonderful project that spanned from the beginning of December to the end of the year of 2018 that involved the Bassett Family who was assigned to our community by Operation Ward 57. You can see the project at: The Patriot Woodworkers with Op Ward 57 Adopt a Wounded Warrior Family for the Holidays - 2018 The donation We have a woodworker and his wife, @honesttjohn and Mrs. Mordus who for the past two years have shipped us some wonderful gifts for the families we support through our annual Christmas project. I always enjoy what the Mordus's ship us for the intended family of honor. You can see the Mordus's efforts last year at this link: This year was no different. We were contacted by John and he asked, "What can we do". He laid out some suggestions and just like last year, he quickly jumped into action and produced some lovely gifts for the family, and the Mordus's also threw in some Amazon gift cards for the boys as well! I'd like to show off what Mr. and Mrs. Mordus sent for the family, just like last year when I opened up the box to inspect the items and to have our kids wrap them in Christmas paper for delivery, I was deeply touched by what was in the box. I am a huge fan of anything hand made, obviously, as we all are! And I am a huge admirer of hand made clothing and blankets and such, and again, Mrs. Mordus came through with a beautiful blanket made by her own hand for the family. The blanket work is fine and beautiful The Mordus gifts, the beautiful family blanket laying over a chair, with plaques for mom and dad made by John, and two boxes with gift cards for the boys. After reading the family introduction at our project page for the Bassett's, John Mordus was struck with the continued service that Mrs. Bassett performs around the community, and throughout our nation to better the challenging conditions that surround our disabled veterans. Mrs. Bassett is the Nevada State Fellow for the Elizabeth Dole Foundation, and she travels to Washington to advocate for our veterans. John made a very appropriate honor for her. John also read that Dad Bassett loves to work in his garage, specifically automotive mechanics. So John made up a fun dedication to Mr. Bassett's man cave. Our kids wrapped them up and sent them off to the Bassett's, just in time for Christmas. Christmas morning The Bassett's and the Mordus gifts Christmas morning, they all loved them @honesttjohn! Mr. Bassett and subject of honor for our Christmas Project with his sign, "Pop's Shop"! Look at that smile! From what I understand Mrs. Bassett loved her gift very much as well, but was probably a bit shy to be in the camera at that time of the morning, you all know how females get first thing in the morn! Mr. and Mrs. Mordus, thank you once again for your help in yet another year with our Adopt a Wounded Warrior Family for Christmas project. You truly do help make this event a special one, with the personal touch to the families. Now I know what is going to happen next, Honestjohn is going to send me a PM saying, "you really didn't have to make a big deal out of this", well, sorry John, yes I did! Thank you!
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
