Hi All-

 

I hope you drove through town this week and saw the #yarn4hope installation.  Here are some photos:

I think that it is impactful while also being perfectly understated; a balance of beauty and hope. Each piece possesses a story or rather an intention from the person who created the pieces.  We had over 30 pieces made from students, teachers, school staff, parents, empty nesters and knitting circles from the Council on Aging and St. Edward; a true community effort!  Blake Middle School teacher, Diane Horvath, was the visionary and orchestrated all of this!

 

I hope that this installation brings awareness and compels people to either get educated to recognize the signs and for those who are suffering, to seek help…some may think this is naive, but we must stay stedfast in our desire to prevent more deaths by suicide.

 

Thanks all!

Anna Mae
