Default In the News Again!

Hi folks, here is an online link to today's local paper and a story about my after-school program:

Students knit scarves for Coats for Kids campaign - Local - News - The News (New Glasgow)

I've been teaching the kids how to knit (scarves only) to donate to a local charity that collects used winter clothing for kids who don't have any.
I have kids from ages 5-9 who are knitting, boys and girls, which is wonderful,
and they are doing so well! We're hoping to have about a dozen scarves ready for next weekend when the big giveaway is scheduled.

Please note that the caption under the photo is wrong, it is obviously not me and a little girl named Serenity, but is actually 2 girls, aged 9 and 8.
