The Longest Day Fundraising Raffle and Knitting Picnic

Saturday, July 15th 10am - 4pm in the Shop and 4pm - Sundown at the Gazebo in Edmund Lyons Park in East Rochester

We hope you can join us on Saturday, July 15th as we bring our Longest Day fundraising event for the Alzheimer's Association to a close and gather to honor those now facing Alzheimer's and their caregivers, and to remember those we have lost.

All are welcome to come and spend the day knitting, crocheting or stitching in the shop for someone you may or may not know with Alzherimer's, or a caregiver, or in memory of someone.

At 4pm we will close the shop and move to the Gazebo in Edmund Lyons Park in East Rochester where we will:

  • continue or knitting in the park
  • enjoy a simple picnic (please bring a lawn chair and a dish to pass if you can)
  • draw winning names for all of the beautiful items we are raffling
  • conclude the day at sunset with a ceremony of recognition of the challenges faced by all who have been touched by Alzheimer's, remembrance, and hope fo the future

Thank you to everyone who has participated so far. And a special thank you to all who donated items to be raffled. Your generosity is both inspiring and humbling.

If you have not had the chance to stop in to buy raffle tickets yet, there is still time. Tickets can be purchased up until 4pm on Saturday, July 15th. All proceeds from raffle ticket sales will go to the Alzheimer's Association.

Hope to see you Saturday!
