On October 12th & 13th the Epsilon Sigma Alpha is having a project for homeless veterans in South Dakota. They have approximately 120 people getting together in Sioux Falls from 12 different states. This group will be spending their time making "plarn" (plastic yarn) from grocery bags and then the plarn will be crocheted into sleeping mats for the homeless Veterans in the Sioux Falls community. 

These people will be flying into Sioux Falls, so they're not able to bring the tools needed to make these mats. If anyone would like to donate used scissors, rotary cutters, or mats they would greatly appreciate it. It takes 700 bags and approximately 50 hours to make 1 mat.
 
If you would like to donate something,
please drop them off at the store,
and we will get it to the group.


If you're in the mood for Turkey, Mashed Potatoes,
Dressing, Corn, Coleslaw,
and homemade desserts come to
Dell Rapids on Sunday, September 16th. 

Diane, Deb, and Mariah are in charge of
St. Mary Turkey Dinner and Bazaar.
We are cooking 110 turkeys!
