Lions Hold Blanket Day to Benefit St. Basil’s Children

The Philipstown Lion’s Club together with Project Linus held a blanket day Oct. 26, to benefit children of St. Basil’s Academy in Garrison. Project Linus asked the community to donate fleece in bright patterns and solids. The fleece was used by Lion’s Club volunteers to create hand-tied fleece blankets. Any fleece donated beyond what was needed for this project will be made into blankets by Project Linus blanketeers and distributed among community charities.
