Thank You Doreen
Thank You Doreen
Here at HopeSpring, we are very sad that the wonderful Doreen Ross has passed away. Doreen loved to knit and crochet and was a member of the “KnitWits”. Doreen arranged for the KnitWits, a group of women who love to knit and crochet together, to create lapghans and prayer shawls for new HopeSpring members. They also knit the HopeSpring teddies that we sell for 5 dollars each. They are a very popular fundraiser, especially around Christmas. We will miss Doreen’s cheerful visits with her bags of teddies and lapghans.
