Project Linus, August 26: Have you ever known a child to be seriously ill? Most of us have, and we know how important a child’s security blanket can be as a source of comfort and healing. Project Linus is a national non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to making and donating blankets to children in crisis. Blankets donated to our local Nashville Area chapter go to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital and Ronald McDonald House, as well as other area hospitals, funeral homes, fire and police precincts, and crisis centers serving children in the Nashville area and beyond. You can help! Second Presbyterian Church will host a Project Linus blanket day on Saturday, August 26 (9:30-2). If you have sewing, knitting, or crocheting skills, we can help you put them to work. If not, we can teach you! You can also help label, sort, count, bag, and document the blankets that we receive for delivery. We will meet in the Café. For more information contact Clee Lee at 618-1346 or email@example.com.
Dancing on the Edge Women’s Book Group: Our reading for will be August Jacqueline Woodson's novel Another Brooklyn. Ann Patchett says it "is a sort of fever dream, containing both the hard truths of life and the gentle beauty of memory. The story of a young girl trying to find herself in the midst of so many conflicting influences and desires swallowed me whole." All women are invited to book group gatherings the second and fourth Monday evenings of the month at 7 pm in the Second Cafe.
