Unit 54 reports that 120 lapghans were made, with great participation from ladies in the RSVP, and presented to the new Veterans Administration nursing home in Payson. Another 120 lapghans were sent to the new V.A. nursing home in Ivins. At the present time, lapghans are being made to send to the nursing home unit at the V.A. center in Grand Junction, Colo.
Unit 54 thanked Jeanette Bottoms of La Sal for helping with the project – she has crocheted at least 57 lapghans for the veterans in the nursing homes, according to organization officials. Unit 54 will soon visit Helen M. Knight Elementary School, Grand County Middle School and Grand County High School to provide teachers and their students information about participating in the 2014 Americanism essay contest.
