(Lto R) Quilts of Valour Representatives, Diane Johnson, Judy MacLeod held up the quilts for all to see in a proud moment of honoring our Veterans. WWII Veteran Joyce Bell enlisted in the Army at the tender age of 16 in England, she, like Princess Elizabeth, was part of The Motor Pool, responsible for transporting dignitaries and officials. This responsibility meant Bell was responsible for maintaining her own Jeep. Impressive to say the least, and yet Bell's talent was not to be underestimated as she was awarded a Third Class Mechanics License!
