Project Linus Blanket Day April 20

    DOVER-FOXCROFT — The annual Community Project Linus Blanket Day will be held on April 20 at the Penquis Higher Education Center on Mayo Street from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Dover-Foxcroft Congregational Church Women’s Fellowship group will be serving coffee, snacks and lunch by donation.

    For more information please contact Piscataquis Coordinator Judy at 564-2246 or email  or Penobscot Coordinator Merlene at 561-9225 or
    The mission of Project Linus is to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade, washable blankets and afghans, lovingly crafted by volunteer blanketeers. 
    Anyone who can learn to tie a square knot is invited to join in the fun. Community involvement is vital to the success of this event, and it is hoped that as many people as possible will come and help make these blankets.  The goal is to make 100 quilts to distribute in Piscataquis and Penobscot counties. We have lots of fabric, orphan quilt blocks, quilt tops that need to be put together, so bring your sewing machine, scissors or just your energy and help us put some quilts together.
