Westwood Christian Fellowship Pastor Curtis Tucker came to the Parker County Sheriff’s Office this week to present Sheriff Larry Fowler with a blanket made by church member Kathy Brown.
The patriotic hometown blanket depicts the Parker County Courthouse, the Parker County Sheriff’s emblem, a deputy’s badge, a patrol unit and the American flag.
The phrase, “We are Weatherford,” is placed on the bottom corner of the blanket over a map of Weatherford.
The blanket is the second handmade notion recently gifted to the Sheriff’s Office.
North Side Baptist Church Pastor Van Houser presented the Sheriff’s Office with a quilt made by the church’s Prayers and Squares Ministry team in remembrance of 9/11.
Each square of the quilt was knotted by hand as the ladies of the quilting team spoke prayers over all Parker County deputies. The quilt was accompanied by a plaque displaying a letter describing the quilt, and the meaning behind its creation.
Sheriff Fowler was very pleased to receive the blanket and quilt on behalf of the department.
“We are deeply honored that our local churches would recognize the Sheriff’s Office and all who serve our community,” Sheriff Fowler said. “The details and craftsmanship are strikingly beautiful, but the meaning and purpose behind them are what mean the most to us. I know I speak for our entire staff when I say the quilt and blanket truly display how our community stands behind one another. They will each serve as great reminders of how precious our community is to us and the wonderful people who made them and prayed for us.”
Sheriff Fowler added the blanket and quilt will each be framed and prominently displayed in the foyer of the Sheriff’s Office.
