Project Linus to hold blanket work day
The North Central Kentucky Chapter of Project Linus will hold a blanket work day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the First United Methodist Church, 1280 Lexington Road, Georgetown. During the workday, volunteers will turn finished quilt tops into completed quilts and make no-sew fleece blankets. All skill levels are welcome to attend. The chapter covers Scott, Harrison, Pendleton, Nicholas, Bourbon and Robertson counties.
Once completed, the blankets are distributed through hospitals, health departments, judicial agencies and funeral homes. Donations of new, handmade blankets or materials also can be dropped off at Georgetown's First United Methodist Church, the Scott County Public Library, the Kentucky Doll and Toy Museum in Carlisle or the Harrison County Sheriff's Office.
