The Harborettes Club of Egg Harbor/Fish Creek (a Home and Community Education group) held its first “Day of Mending” in the Jacksonport Town Hall on April 8, inviting the community to bring clothing in need of a little TLC to this civic-minded club to repair free of charge.
The club hemmed pants, mended jeans and t-shirts, and even made a new pillowcase for a special bed pillow. (Above) Jerry Schimmelpfenning, left, cuts out book bags while the rest of the club (from left, Little Bit LeClair, Teri Madden, Annette Heck and Char Mueller) sews them together. The group created 17 book bags for its Wisconsin Bookworms program, which provides children with a free book bag and set of books that are read to them each month by a Home and Community Education volunteer. Submitted.
