Mark your calendars! Trekkers is in the running for receiving the funds from an Over the Rainbow Yarn 24-Hour Community Blanket Knitting Marathon! Starting at 12 Noon on Friday, October 16, in the Winslow-Holbrook Square in downtown Rockland, teams of four knitters will stitch in two hour shifts round the clock until Noon on Saturday, October 17. While the stitchers are stitching, local non-profits (includes Trekkers this year!) will be accepting votes in the form of non-perishable food items placed in their decorated boxes in the square. The non-profit with the most food items (by number, not weight) will receive all the proceeds from the raffle.
All the non-perishable food will be given to the AIO Food Pantry. When the blanket is finished, they will display it at Over The Rainbow Yarn, 18 School Street in Rockland, and they will raffle it off. At The Festival of Lights, they will draw the winning raffle ticket and one lucky recipient will go home with a beautiful blanket.
Please help us by donating non-perishable food items in our decorated box in Winslow-Holbrook Square from 12 Noon on Oct. 16 through 12 Noon on October 17!! Thank you. ... See MoreSee Less
