Sit n’ Sew leaders named Hometown Hero

Three members of the Strawberry Plains Senior Center were recently given the “Hometown Heroes” award from Modern Woodmen of America for volunteering to head up the “Sit n’ Sew” for the seniors at the Center. Pictured from left are Karen Hall, Modern Woodmen representative; Andrea Jackson, Grace Collins, Deborah Jeffers, recipients; and Sandra Norton, Strawberry Plains Senior Center Director. The program has been a mainstay for the center. They also support Safe Harbor with quilts the seniors build for children who are temporarily homeless. Center Director Sandra Norton gave a supporting speech with “Thank you ladies for sharing your talents and expertise in your art… and love for those less fortunate, and the seniors that attend this center.” – STEVEN LLOYD | THE STANDARD BANNER
