Bob Davis Veteran Center in Mountain Home joins Arkansas’ Quilt Trail

The Bob Davis Veteran Center in Mountain Home joined the Arkansas Quilt Trail Tuesday morning after receiving a quilt block from Virginia Cornett, coordinator for the Baxter County Quilt Trail. 

The still under construction veteran’s center is expected to open in September.

“The name of the quilt block is ‘A Salute to Veterans,’” Cornett said. 

The new piece is the 27th to be displayed in the county. 

When opened, the center will provide a “coffee hut” for veterans to relax and play games. It will also have sleeping quarters for up to 18 homeless veterans.

“We’ve got job training programs lined up with different businesses in town,” said Joanna Farris, secretary/treasurer for The Bob Davis Veteran Center. “We’ve got arrangements made with the college for them to go to classes. And if you don’t work, you don’t stay here.”
