---- — Thanks and Please Keep On Knitting

The Knitting Clubs of the Kingston Community Library and the Fremont Public Library would like to thank all those who participated in the Knit A Hat For A Homeless Vet Day.

This kick-off event generated 118 hats far exceeding our goal of 50 for the day. Many hats were made at home and delivered. Others were completed at the event.

Participants included Kathy Sullivan, Alice Johnson, Paulette Meyer, Alice Itz, Maureen Mitchell, Donna Moschetto, Peg Sousy, Joan Libby, Nancy LeCain, Nena Sawyer, Diane Bean, Lauri Gaudet, Marilyn Bolton, Georgia DeBlois, Arlene Ware, Barbara Farrell, Cindy Palmer, Jim Perkins, Sylvia from Sandown, Linda Pedersen, Doris Williams, and Sharon Tonas, Julia Redman and the Merrimac Senior Center Knitting Club in Merrimac, MA who donated yarn. Many made hats and donated yarn anonymously. To all we give our thanks!

The Liberty House (Manchester, NH) and the Veterans Northeast Outreach Center (Haverhill, MA) service hundreds of homeless veterans. We encourage those who love to knit and crochet to continue to make as many hats as you can. Patterns are still available at the Kingston Community Library. Completed hats can be delivered to the Kingston Community Library through December 1.

When hats were delivered last year, one of the recipients was so grateful that he asked with tear-filled eyes, “Someone made this hat for me?” Please help our homeless veterans know they are appreciated. For further information, please call me at 603-895-6658. Thanks!
