Farm Bureau Financial Services employees recognized their veteran colleagues for their military service, presenting them with handcrafted quilts. Kirk Pederson and Michael Wehmeyer, both of Tonganoxie, were among the employees who were presented with quilts during an event at the company’s regional office. The quilts, which were made by fellow employees, were given to veterans in honor of Veterans Day on Nov. 11. “These quilts are a token of our admiration and appreciation for your service,” said CEO Jim Brannen. “We thank you for defending the freedom of this great nation. “Words can never truly express how grateful we are, but I hope that each time you use these beautiful quilts, you remember that your sacrifices and your service have not gone unnoticed. It is an honor to call you my colleagues.”
