Miscellaneous Projects Updates

ThanksMany thanks to Mary Annis for the big bag of hats and scarves she’s already knitted to the kids at Guilford Primary School. Wintah’s coming! This is an ongoing project… and also includes knitting for seniors. If you’ve got some busy fingers and knitting kneedles, contact Mary and ask what’s needed!

During our September Roundtable we reviewed items we will continue to collect and the list includes aluminum pop tops, Campbell’s Labels, Box Tops for Education, and old eyeglasses for the Lion’s Club. If you’d like to help, give your items to any Grange member or better yet, bring them to a meeting.

We currently are in good shape with pre-school books for our Literacy for Health program, but it doesn’t hurt to have some extras on hand. (We need new or VERY gently used books appropriate for pre-school age. These books are distributed by our local public health nurse, Karen Dolley.)
