Judy Jelsema, one of our wonderful social knitters had  a great idea for our "Cast Off the Cold"
Christmas Tree. If each of our "social knitters" (whom you are cordially invited to join on Mon. pm, and Wed.
and Fri. ams) and any others who are willing would knit  one hat, we could really fill our tree! It's hard to
imagine now but in a few short months it will be COLD! And these hats, mittens and scarves are very much
appreciated by the folks at Mel Trotter!

If you would like to donate to any of our service projects,
