On a sunny Autumn day last week at Hatter’s Park in Danbury, twenty-nine pairs of busy hands made thirty blankets. The Danbury Regional Hospice was thrilled to receive the colorful, cozy, fleece “No-Sew Blankets”. It was perfect timing as their supply was getting low. This is the third year in which the Home Life Committee has volunteered time and materials in creating these much needed items. In the Spring, the ladies will meet again to make many more warm blankets for Hospice.
