On November 1st, I sent 30 hats knitted by volunteers in the Roaring Fork Valley and surrounding area. December 1st I mailed another 40. The response to this service project has been very heartwarming. The following is an excerpt from a letter regarding the involvement of the knitters in this project from Chris Loffelmacher, Cultural Director at the Denver Public Library:Dear Mountain Valley Textiles Knitters:I would like to thank you on behalf of The Denver Public Library and the Rocky Mountain USO for your donation of hand-knitted caps for our project Knitting for our Troops. I recently personally delivered a shipment of hats to the USO at Denver International Airport; these hats were gratefully received by the director of the USO, Hedy Margolis, who told me that a group of soldiers would be deploying before Christmas and each soldier would receive a hat in their care package. It is because of your kindness and generosity that this was possible.This letter in its entirety and a recent Denver Post Article regarding the project are available for perusal at Mountain Valley Textiles & Gifts, 209 Eighth Street in downtown Glenwood Springs.Elaine Speck, store managerMountain Valley Textiles & Gifts
