Calling all knitters and crocheters! Lend your needles and hooks to creating a scarf, hat, mittens or socks that will be used to decorate Congress Square Park on Veterans Day, November 11, 2016! The items will be displayed on trees, benches, light poles, etc. Anyone who needs or likes something is welcome to take it free of charge! This is a fun charity knitting project modeled on the original Chase the Chill started by Susan Huxley in Easton, PA. Rosanne Graef launched Chase the Chill – Portland, Maine on January 22, 2016, and hopes that over the next 8-9 months we can create some warm and toasty items for Veterans and anyone else who needs them.
