Hats Delivered!

November 21st, 2019 at 08:10 pm

We did our final hat delivery yesterday to one of the schools. It has been a challenge getting them delivered between DH's eye surgeries and doctor's appointments, school issues, and the weather. But, they are where they need to be and I'm so glad.

The local paper came out and took photos and did a story. Here is the link if you are so inclined to read it:

This school which is slated to close at the end of this year, was the building where I started teaching in 1986. It was called Garfield then, but that school moved to another building and took the name and it is now Durfee. Funny thing, I taught at Garfield and transferred to Durfee and I was teaching at Durfee when it changed buildings to what was Garfield. I took the opportunity to walk through the school one more time. The district has a dwindling population so they are closing buildings.

Believe it or not, we have already started making hats for next year!

    Well done! I couldn't read your article, though. Even though I made the changes to AdBlock they advised, it was still unreadable! Oh well.

    That is just so kind all the work that you do. Making all of those hats ,scarves etc. You are a very thoughtful person. Glad that your husband's eye surgeries went well. You truly have the "Chrismas Spirit", in all of the good that you do for others. Your group sounds amazing.
