A Benefit for our Canadian Branch

Hi Northeasters,

I received this message from the Western Canada Oddball KAL group, and am happy to share it with you:

"Our little branch of the Oddball KAL has grown so big that we have had to incorporate it as a Charitable Society. We are raising funds to do this by holding an online auction June 15-19th which can be found at"

Info is also available on their blog:

News from the Hospital

I received a lovely letter from Bridgeport Hospital yesterday.  It's a wonderful reminder of the simple yet profound influence that we are having on the little ones in the greater Bridgeport, CT area.

"Thank you and all the members of the Northeast Regional Group for your recent donation of 14 hand-knitted baby blankets for our P.T. Barnum Pediatric Center. As you know our young patients and their parents truly appreciate them. Rest assured that the children definitely feel the "love and good wishes" of the talented individuals who make these beautiful gifts possible." "Please thank all of your fellow knitters for continuing to think of our littlest patients and thank you for taking the time to send them to us. We deeply appreciate your generosity." "Best wishes to all involved for a very happy and healthy summer."

Congratulations to all who have helped enliven the Bliss!
