    Question Help! Ribbons and Trophies

    John and I have a LOT of ribbons and trophies that we have accummulated very happily over a 55 year period. We are getting old.
    Nobody in our families will give a hoot about them when we pass on. The good traveling trophies can go to the RHOP. Does anyone have any idea of what do with them? Open to suggestions. Do any of the clubs recycle their old awarded trophies to represent? What about ribbons. One friend says he is going to put all his in the hole they will bury him in. I don't think we want to do that. Ugh!

    I train with a lady who's daughter made a quilt out of all the ribbons she has gotten. Very cool. If I can get a pic of it I will share it with you.

    Hi Mrs. Martin,

    Welcome to RTF. I just responded to your email and I hope you find a good outlet for your collection.

    Let me know please if there's a way I can help.

    Thanks, Chris

    That is beautiful. I'd much rather have that than the 500 point jacket I've been chasing.

    Here is another option for ribbons - donating to this organization. http://www.ribbonrecycling.com/about.html
