February being only 28 days and our blanket day being a week later, made the time fly! This newsletter is with short notice, as our regularly scheduled blanket making day is this coming Monday, March 2nd from 10:00am to 2:00pm at Our Saviour's Lutheran Church in Holladay.
Utah National Guard
Our Project Linus Chapter has always been interested in doing whatever we can for the children of military service people. This month we have been in contact with the National Guard office that handles families of deployed guard soldiers. Every month there is a deployment of soldiers that leave Utah and leave their families for a period of time. The children of these soldiers whose Daddies/Mommies are leaving them are certainly in need of comfort. The family service department does prepare a survival kit for the families and now our blankets (one for each child in the family) will be a part of that departure kit. Good work blanketeers!
