Knitwits help Santa Project

It's almost time! The Knitwits will be emptying their bags and tubs of scarves and caps as part of the Calloway County Santa Project.Once a needy child is referred to the project for gifts, the ladies of the Knitwits add another name to our knitting list as well. Not only does that child receive a knitted scarf and hat but so do every school age child in the family!

Last year, the mighty group of 10 retirees contributed over 150+ items to the project. This year the number has grown to over 200+ as more families have found themselves in need this holiday season.

As soon as the love gifts are delevered, the Knitwits will turn their focus to the Kentucky Special Olympics! Working in this year's colors of black and gray, the ladies will begin knitting scarves for our athletes at the Special Olympics state meet in February to wear in the Opening Ceremony.
