Thank you from Blanket for Canada Coaldale group

Posted on December 14, 2023 by Sunny South News

Dear Editor,

This is our annual Thank-You message from Blanket for Canada Coaldale group.

This year, nationally we celebrated 25 years of making blankets. We met October 26 at the Southminster United Church in Lethbridge. We had coffee and goodies, and also some speakers who congratulated us and special thanks to Nancy Panting who started this. It was a snowy day, so there were seniors who did not come. 

Coaldale group was there and I was able to report that we still meet every Thursday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

We want to thank all those who have donated blankets, yarns and materials to make more than 200 blankets this year, and that we have in the 17 years in Coaldale made more than 3,000 blankets.

We thank God for giving us helpers and supplies to make it all possible. Feel free to stop by on a Thursday or phone Nellie at 403-345-3205 for an appointment, not on a Sunday. We are at 2226 – 23 Ave., in Coaldale.

Wishing you all Gods blessings for 2024.

Nellie Slingerland, 

Blankets for Canada
