The Weekly Stitch

Happy New Year!

Wow- it's seems really strange to say that!  Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's celebration.  We had a crazy Christmas with my whole family here at out home (lots of fun especially since my 90 year old grandmother was able to join us), and a quiet and relaxed New Year's spent at our lake cabin.  Now it's back to regular routines and schedules - a relief in some ways but sad in others.

Here is what is going on with YOH this week!

Weekly Meetings
  • Tuesday - 10AM in the Hospitality Room at FBC McKinney
  • Wednesday - 6:15 in the Fireside Room at FBC McKinney (Regular Wednesday night activities will be resuming, including childcare, kids' program and Family Meal at 5:00.)
Ongoing Projects
  • Chemo caps and scarves - for adults, kids and babies.  To be donated to Texas Oncology McKinney, Medical City Children's Hospital, and UT Southwestern Moncrieff Center.
  • Blankets and knitted/crocheted toys - to be donated to Medical City Children's Hospital.
  • Knitting Club at Finch Elementary - the girls were off to a great start before the holidays.  I can't wait to see what they can accomplish this year!  We can still use more volunteers to teach as there have been a couple of times we have had to cancel because of lack of teachers.  It's such a shame to have to do that - which is why we can use ANY of you to help.  Any skill level and it doesn't have to be every week.
God bless each of you!
