Homemakers’ community project day set for April 14


By Tozi Rubin
Special to The PREVIEW

The Mountain View Homemakers April meeting is the group’s annual community project day.

We will be tying lap quilts for hospital patients and veterans and we’ll be sewing large bags for the Archuleta County Victim Assistance Program and smaller bags that will go to the hospital. Everything that we sew will stay in Pagosa.

Those who have sewing machines and/or particularly sergers are encouraged to bring them. Everyone can participate in some way to contribute to our community. Tying together quilts, sewing and ironing will begin after lunch. Experience the great feeling of doing something for others with others.

All area women are invited to meet at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, April 14, at the Extension center at the fairgrounds. There will be a covered-dish lunch at noon. First-time visitors are not expected to bring food.

Mountain View Homemakers is a 50-year-old monthly gathering of area women who are interested in making their lives, the lives of their families and the community more enjoyable. The meetings include lunch and a speaker or activity.

There are no dues or membership requirements and every interested woman is welcome. Please do not feel that you must have special homemaking skills to join us. Call Tozi at 731-3360 with questions.
