Our August meeting was very special because we celebrated the birthday of the first recipient of one of our Hero Blankets! It was Madison Walker's 8th birthday. Her mother Dawn and brother Gregory and Daryl Mackin of A Soldier's Child joined in the celebration. For more details about Madison, her party and A Soldier's Child, please see the attached article.

We had an interesting and busy meeting this month. Not only were we visited by Bonnie Burch of the Williamson Herald, but we also welcomed Daryl Mackin, the founder and Executive Director, of A Soldier's Child. This non-profit "adopts" children who have lost a parent while on active duty and provides gifts for them on their birthdays.

The 227 hats, 43 scarves, and 4 pairs of mittens you lovingly knitted and crocheted made their way to Huron, South Dakota, where they were given away to families in need. Please read the article from the Huron newspaper and the note from Sandra Osborn to see how much your efforts were appreciated.

Molly Chatterjee introduced us to Ann Wire, the Director of Volunteers at Baptist Hospital, who stopped by our March meeting to thank us for all the items we've donated for the babies at Baptist. She was impressed with the number of avid stitchers in our group and told us how much our handcrafted items brighten up the otherwise sterile hospital environment. She also told us that Baptist would love to have lap quilts & prayer shawls for their adult patients, so we now have more options of what to make.

August 2011 - Room in the Inn

Hats & Scarves for Room in the Inn
Seven stitchers - Robin, Juli, Maria, Laura, Marilyn, Janice, & Kathi - made the trip to visit Room in the Inn on Wednesday, August 31st. We delivered 97 hats, 45 scarves, and a few other items to Karen Stevens, who was very grateful for the donation. She gave us a tour of their impressive facility. I, for one, came away with a heightened awareness of the complexity of the issue of homelessness and of all that Room in the Inn does to help those in need.

115 Skeins; 52,108 yds; 886 oz! That's how much yarn we were able to purchase thanks to the generosity of the Brentwood Noon Rotary Club. The 19 stitchers who joined us this month enjoyed selecting from a wide assortment of yarns and colors for their next projects.

Fourteen of us met in the Fall Conference room and enjoyed a companionable morning of stitching. We extend a warm welcome to Marilyn Naylor who joined us for the first time. By our next meeting we hope to have used the generous gift from the Rotary Club to have purchased more yarn.
