BLANKETS FOR THE HOMELESS. The Junior Youth Group of the First Religious Society, students from the Fenn School and Carlisle fourth-grade Girl Scouts gathered in Union Hall to make fleece blankets and scarves (piled on table in back). The project was organized by Fenn parent Weezie Petrie and FRS Director of Religious Education Molly Sorrows. The Fenn students helped raise money to purchase the fleece. The blankets are given to the Pine Street Inn, which distributes the blankets to the homeless. (Photo by Susan Emmons)
