Lynn Wright messaged me yesterday that she had received two more Granny Squares from our recent "shout outs". Thanks Diane, as they truly are appreciated.
For those who might have missed that post, here it is once again:
My friend, Lynn, is part of the Wiarton Optimist Club. Yesterday she had posted to her Facebook page that she is doing a "fundraiser" on the behalf of raising money to go towards the Basketball Court for our local children. This is what I have posted to my Facebook page, after reading Lynn's post:
SHOUT OUT TO ALL MY "Crochet" Friends please. My friend, Lynn Wright, who is with the Wiarton Optimist Club is doing a fundraiser and is looking some people for Crochet participation! Here is Lynn's deal:
I'd like to do a fundraiser for our Optimist club. We support a lot of youth functions in our area. We are currently working on a basketball court and should have it completed by spring. We have also paid to send kids who can't afford it otherwise, for them to go to a summer camp, and we put on a family fun day once a year that is absolutely free for kids to attend. I'm thinking if anyone would like to donate a granny square , lets go with 4 x 4 in size, regular worsted yarn, then I can join them all together and use it as a raffle at our next event. If anyone would like to help with this please send your square to:
Lynn Wright P.O. Box 342 Wiarton, Ontario, Canada, N0H 2T0
Thanks so much! I would love to have them all here by the end of December so that I can get them all linked together in time for our next family day event . (crocheted squares only please).
Should any of my "Crochet" readers love to contribute to this cause, I would appreciate it, as would Lynn, and the Wiarton Optimist Club. If you do decide to participate, could you please include a note you are a reader of my blog, as I have asked Lynn to let me know should she receive any from you out there, so we can photograph and post about how it is all coming together. I am really very excited about this ! A couple of my Relatives have already committed themselves to a "Granny Square", as has my Sister Donna, who is going to be mailing two off to Lynn, one being on my half of course *smile*. Thank you to all in advance to who that partake in this "Fundraiser". I do LOVE giving back whenever I am able, as I am sure most people do.
Once again, I personally thanks all in advance who are able to oblige. Thank you.
This is a very old Christmas time song that I seldom hear any more, but also have always loved ...
