Lapghans for veterans...

The American Legion Auxiliary together with the R.S.V.P. volunteers are working on a project to supply our two new Utah veterans homes with lapghans. These are small afghans for the lap.

The new veterans home in Payson, Utah, will have its grand opening in June. We would like to have enough lapghans to present them to the veterans. Each veterans home needs 120 lapghans.

We are proud to say we now have completed 83, but we have a long way to go. The lapghan must be 36-inches by 46-inches. They can have no fringe. They can be crocheted, knitted, or sewn. The yarn or material must be washable. We would love to get some sewed lapghans made out of fleece or some other warm material.

If you need yarn, or you would like to donate yarn, or need a crochet pattern, please stop by Nifty Fashions, 89 E. Center St., and I would be happy to help you.

We have a wonderful bunch of ladies working hard, but we need more help. Please see if you can find the time to make one.

American Legion Auxiliary and R.S.V.P.
