P L Newsletter –October 2017

Hello Blanketeers
           We are now back to our regular first Monday of the month schedule for our blanket making day at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church.  In October it will be on the 2nd, 10:00 to 2:00.   Riverton Senior Center day will be October 27th on the 4th Friday 9:30 to noon.

About Communication
      This month has been difficult for me since I have been experimenting with a new way to reach you since gmail will not send blind copy information any more.  So, I have organized a new group called “google groups” which is designed just for newsletters and clubs. 
       In order to be in the group and receive the information you have to click on “accept the invitation” within a week of the time I send it.      Millie

Herriman South Stake Project
     Blanketeer, Patsy Bueno met with a huge group of volunteers this month to introduce Project Linus and to help them make blankets for distribution to children in Salt Lake County.  Lisa LeStarge and the women of Herriman South Stake have been diligent about learning the fringe loop pattern that we prefer.  Thanks to all of them as well as to Patsy for coordinating this large project. 

South Jordan 2nd Ward
   Thanks to the participants of South Jordan 2nd Ward for their donation and volunteerism.  They submitted a large number of double fleece blankets.  All of them are well done and fringed using our pattern. 
Smiths Inspiring Donations
        Don’t forget to go on line and attach your Smith ID to our number so we can receive donations when you make purchases. 

Blankets to Texas
      Shipping blankets is very expensive as they are so heavy.  But I was able to find a donation that allowed us this past month to ship 20 blankets to the survivors of Hurricane Harvey in Texas .
 Thanks to all of you for all you do - month after month.     Millie
