Who are these masked women?

    Bored, finished all your projects (mostly), like to sew, chat, make new friends? I have just the answer for you!

    Cooperating with AnniPat McKenney, program manager at LincolnHealth's Coloumbe Center, the St. Andrews Auxiliary is making face masks for school children.

    We would love to have you join us. The donated materials are here at the Thrift Shop and ready to go. Our president, Laura Zajdel, is an avid quilter and welcomes new sewers for home work along with guidelines for sizing the masks. If you are interested, please call Laura at 633-5731 for this and other opportunities within the Auxiliary.

    This project is just one of many outreach endeavors. The coronavirus has put an unusual stress on our neighbors. Trying to put a few smiles on faces is our goal for now. Several of us have been calling residents of St. Andrews Village as well as Auxiliary members who are in need of personal communication. Notes, parades and baskets of cheer have also been in the queue to accomplish just that.

    Now that our famous Thrift Shop is open, the need for volunteers is once again in demand. Stop in, look around, you will like what you see, a welcoming word, bountiful racks of clothing, housewares and vintage items. Did I mention a gaggle of volunteers who have a wonderful outlook, fun times and for many, new friendships? Please consider joining us. We would love to have you in our little family! You may call Carole McCarthy, our vivacious manager, who will give you more information (633-5014) St. Andrews Auxiliary Sewing Group with this week's batch of “Masks for Schools” project.

    Several hundred masks have already been delivered to school nurses throughout Lincoln County.
