Knit A Hat for a Homeless Veteran
Submitted by Gerry Tilley   9-27-16

Join us on Saturday, October 1st from 9 AM until 1 PM at the Kingston Community Library. Please join us all day or drop in for an hour. Bring your needles and worsted weight yarn. We have quick and easy instructions or use your favorite pattern. You’d rather crochet? That’s OK! Help us reach our goal of 50 hats!

These hats will top Christmas stockings filled with toiletries. The Liberty House (Manchester, NH) and the Veterans Northeast Outreach Center (Haverhill, MA) will distribute them to the homeless veterans that they service.

Can’t come that day, but would like to help? Make your hats at home and drop them off at the library. Yarn donations would be gratefully appreciated.
Join the knitting groups from the Fremont Public Library and the Kingston Community Library as we give back to those who have served us well and ensured our freedom.
For further information call Gerry Tilley at 603-895-6658.
















Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation's compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain love for one another.

Never before has man had such a great capacity to control his own environment, to end hunger, poverty and disease, to banish illiteracy and human misery.

We have the power to make the best generation of mankind in the history of the world.
