PAA is known for the variety of its projects.

A large donation of wonderful materials was made to PAA. It needed to be sorted, and distributed.
Tote Bags, Owls, Cough Pillows, Respirator Covers, Beads of Courage bags, etc...all benefited!

Auxiliary Business must be done and finished first...
......Nancy Larsson, President and Stephanie Beach, VP, brought us up to date.
And then we checked out the items crafted, or to be made by PAA:
"Medical Dolls" for small patients to learn of procedures
"Blankets" or "Pillow Cases" for comfort
"Beads of Courage Bags" for holding beads to record, and tell their stories of courage
"Cough Pillows" to help patients recover
"Respirator Covers" to disguise the mechanical parts
 "Tote Bags" will be stuffed with goodies & given to in-patients during the holidays

Taken part in projects: Luisa P, June S, Nancy S, Nancy L, Stephanie B, Karen S, Dallas M, and Nancy B
"Owls" given to each child who enters the ER
....and a probable new item, heart-shaped for heart patients.
