A beautiful partnership has been stitched together as the women of two groups worked together to knit, crochet and loom more than 200 winter caps for children at Mark Twain Elementary School in Duncan this year.
The Duncan Senior Citizens Center group “Happy Hatters” and the Eastside Church of Christ joined together in making these caps. The two groups would meet once a week and bring caps completed at home and work together during the regularly scheduled meeting from 9-11 a.m. each Tuesday.
The task was undertaken by Charlotte Owens, Judy Taff, Jackie Richardson and Janie Kierbow. With over 200 caps made this year, enough hats were available for each head on each student at Mark Twain School.
“Each cap was made with love and is a way to show the kids that people care about them,” states a release. “The ladies had a lot of fun accomplishing this project.”
Two years ago this same group supplied 375 caps to Woodrow Wilson Elementary School, also in Duncan.
To contribute to the project, drop yarn off at the Duncan Senior Citizens Center, a United Way agency, at the corner of 7th Street and Elder Avenue.
