Knitting Group

I am the Recreation Director for our community of Reidville. I have a sister who has had 2 hip replacements, and feels that she cannot partake in many exercise programs. She wanted to be able to be part of a social group, so we gathered some Gals from our community and have become known as the “KNITTING GROUP”.

Now in saying that, they are much more than just the knitting group. They have developed into a group that talks about their different problems and helps each other come up with solutions to those problems. “Your problem is never as big as it seems, when you have a friend to talk it over with.”

They participate in events that Western Health puts of for the community. They donate items and funds to put together Easter Baskets which are distributed to single and shut-in seniors in our community. They help and participate in events like our Holiday Bazaar sale. They participate in bowling events. They trade knitting patterns and help each other with knitting ideas. They have become a close KNIT group, but still welcomes any one in our community that would like to join the group.

They also got together and had a beautiful Christmas lunch, where they exchanged Christmas ornaments. Why not come and check us out. The group meets at the Community Hall every Monday from 1:30-4:00 pm.
