During the event, Mayor Jacobs and the board formally transferred ownership of the Comfort Quilt to the Las Vegas community. The Comfort Quilt was given to Orange County in the wake of the Pulse nightclub shooting in 2016. At the time, the tragedy was considered the largest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. The quilt was a gift from the community of San Bernardino, California, where 14 people had been killed in a mass shooting Dec. 2, 2015. The quilt was originally created by first-graders at St. Hilary Catholic School in Fairlawn, Ohio, in 2001, to comfort children at St. James Catholic School in New Jersey who had lost parents and loved ones in the Sept. 11 attacks. Since then, it has traveled across the country to communities that have experienced traumatic events. For more information, visit www. ocfl.net. BLACK FRIDAY DEALS! Best Brows and Waxing in town!
