Intergenerational Crafting with the Charlotte Children’s Center
Wednesday, March 22, 10:30 a.m.–11:30 a.m.
Because the Valentine’s craft with the pre-school children from Charlotte Children’s Center last month was such a success, we will be collaborating on a Spring Craft activity in March. If you are interested in volunteering to help out, please call the Senior Center to add your name to the list. Also, plan to arrive 15 minutes early to learn the steps involved in the craft.
Knit & Crochet for a Cause
Thursdays, 2:00–3:00 p.m.
We’re looking to start a weekly knitting and crocheting group at the Senior Center. All skill levels are welcome. We will meet on Thursday afternoons as we work on projects to be donated to local organizations in our community. We will be making and donating items for COTS, Lund, and UVM Oncology, but are open to other local organizations as well. Bring a skein of yarn and needles or hook and let’s stitch! Patterns will be available, but feel free to bring your own project to work on. As this is a new group, please register so we know how many people plan to attend. Questions? Please call Suzanne at 802-324-8853.
