Public invited to participate in 7th Annual Knit ’N Run

MILL HALL — The 7th Annual Knit ‘N Run will take place Oct. 5 at 10 a.m. at Bald Eagle United Presbyterian Church, 111 Main St., Mill Hall. There is lots of parking in the back of the church.

The public is invited to come and view over a thousand items that were made by the church’s Prayer Shawl ministry and will be distributed by the bikers.

After visiting and enjoying the refreshments, the bikers will leave the church and distribute the Prayer Shawl items to their local personal care homes, nursing homes and hospital. Items going to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, and the Gatehouse in Williamsport will be delivered on a different day.

This year the church is trying something new. They are asking that the Prayer Shawl ladies come and work on the their items during the Knit ‘N Run. This way others will be able to see how their items are made and who is making them.

The bikers will leave before noon on their bikes with all the items following them in a van. They invite others to join them as they work on the distribution.

The items will be hand delivered to each person, nothing is just dropped off at the door.
