Knotters, Committee Fair, Busy Hands

Knotters Project

During the month of August 2019 Nokomis Square “Knotters” proudly display some of the fleece blankets made during the year.  Since the Knotters Project began in 2010 the group has produced over 900 blankets.  All of the blankets have been donated to charities though out the Twin Cities. Many have gone to organizations that support homeless individuals, some have gone to the VA hospital and the St Joseph’s Home for Children.  All the money to purchase fleece is donated by Nokomis Square members.  Members gather several times a month to cut and tie the blankets.  The knotters are pleased to bring soft comfort to people in need.

Committee Fair

Friday, August 9, 2019 Nokomis Square Cooperative members gathered in the Community Room for a Committee Fair.  Each NSC committee had a table and illustrated the committee functions in hopes of recruiting new members.  The event was a great success and many new participants were added to the committees.  NSC has many committees that all play an important part in the life of Nokomis members.  Activities Tables reminded members about the opportunities for everyday learning and fun!

Busy Hands at Play

Always a game to play at Nokomis Square Cooperative afternoon or evening.  Here are some of the busy “hands” at play.  Some Nokomis “Hands” get together regularly in a group called Busy Fingers…knitting, crocheting, lots of laughter and of course, treats.
