Snuggle Up For St. Jude

OAKcoverJan14

Fayette County Senior Girl Scout Troop No. 43044 held “Snuggle up for St. Jude,” a hand-tied fleece blanket making party to benefit St. Jude Children’s Hospital patients on Jan. 10 at Holy Spirit Lutheran Church in Oakland. Each participant donated and made at least one blanket for a girl at St. Jude. The fleece was flying as volunteers worked hard cutting, pinning, and knotting the blankets. By the end of the event, there were 37 bright and beautiful finished blankets. In addition to these party blankets, a few more from out of town volunteers will be carried to St. Jude for the patients to enjoy. ABOVE: Gwendalyn Johnson of Girl Scout Troop No. 43044.
