In this second year of Hats For A Purpose, a community project to provide new, handmade winter hats for kids in need, I think how fortunate our communities are to have so many caring, concerned and talented people willing to jump in when called. Last year we donated over 300 hats to children in our local area as well as to children who lost everything during the floods following Tropical Storm Irene.
Whether they knit, crochet or weave, people are working on more hats for this winter. My friend, Donna, is headed to Canada this holiday weekend to weave hats with her sister, Kathy. Chances are she will bring back twenty or thirty hats and scarves for the kids. And I know that Cathie B. has another 20 to present on behalf of the Rotary Club of Northern Lake George.
Last winter was exceptionally mild but we can’t count on that this year. I believe we will be called upon for even more hats so would you like to join us and knit, crochet, sew or weave just one hat for a little girl or boy? Any color, any style, any size from baby to elementary-aged boys and girls. Let me know if you wan to be part of Hats For A Purpose.
