In June 2013, 123 afghans were presented to the new veterans center in Payson, Utah. In February 2014, another 120 afghans will be presented to the new veterans home in Ivins, Utah. Thirty afghans were given to the Grand Junction VA home at Christmas. It looks as if we will have approximately 60 lap afghans for veterans in the outreach area, which includes Monticello, Blanding, Monument Valley and points south. Any other afghans received will be sent to the VA home in Salt Lake City.
This has been a wonderful program. It has been a lot bigger and better than we had dreamed.
The Auxiliary wouid like to say “thank you” by inviting all our contributors to a lunch at the Grand Center on March 13, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. All contributors are invited to come.
If you have donated yarn, or made an afghan please call Patti Murphy at 435-259-8411 or 435-259-5290.
Again, a heartfelt “Thank You” to all our contributors.
