Helping Others for the Holidays Project – A Great Success!

Thanks to all who participated in the Helping Others for the Holiday project! The net result was 125 festive holiday place mats, each wrapped with a large holiday bow.

The head bow making elf was Cindy Young (who donated all the ribbon), assisted by Janet Card, John Roy Castillo, Barb Upleger, Tina Maurer and Linda Sowle.


The lead sewing elves were Susan Cockerill and Linda Higgonson.


The other elves, responsible for clipping, flipping, turning, poking, squaring, ironing, wrapping and everything else were: Beverly Zetterholm, Trish Horn, Cindy Hale, Judy Wagoner, Jeanne Sullivan, Nancy Kronenberg, and Karen Spak (who donated all the fabric). Carolyn Schein also contributed sewing labors from home prior to the event.
