Mats made, donated for homeless


As a community outreach project, Tamarack Assisted Living Center has been collecting plastic grocery bags and then folding and cutting them into strips. These strips have been given to ladies at Headrick Baptist Church to crochet into plastic sleeping mats for the homeless. Tamarack recently invited the Headrick Baptist Church ladies and the Major Ben Walters of the Salvation Army for lunch. After the lunch, the ladies presented Major Walters with seven completed mats. Two of these mats won first and second place at the Jackson County Free Fair. Pictured front row left to right: Alene Simmons, Rhonda Ainslie, and Doris Miller. Back row left to right: Dana Booker, Annie Butler, Major Ben Walters, Gaye Harvey, and Tamarack representatives Margene Pease and Tamela Adams.
