The American Legion JUNIOR Auxiliary in Brownville Jct.recently held a yarn drive to benefit Project Linus. The girls collected about ten boxes of yarn that they turned over to Merlene Sanborn, the Project Linus Coordinator.

The yarn will be taken to the Mountainview Juvenile Facility in Charleston. The residents will make blankets for the Project Linus Program.

he girls would like to thank all those people who donated yarn. Without their generosity this project wouldn't have been the success that it was. We would like to make this an ongoing community service project for our group so if you have yarn that you would be willing to give to a good cause, give us a call and we will pick it up.

Project Linus is a wonderful program that brings warmth and comfort to many children. It gave the girls alot of pleasure to be able to give Mrs. Sanborn this yarn for her program. Mrs Sanborn presented the girls with Project Linus patches for their participation in this project.
