On July 10, women of Rhinelander and the surrounding areas gathered at 780 Iverson Street as members of the Relief Society of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to make blankets for Project Linus, a non-profit organization that provides homemade blankets to children in need. Blankets are collected locally and distributed to children in hospitals, shelters, social service agencies or anywhere that a child might be in need of a big hug. Fabric donations were made by individual members of the Relief Society and in an evening, the women were able to produce 16 blankets. The Relief Society is a worldwide organization that is active wherever the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has a presence. Pictured are Holly Somrak and Diana Sturzl, volunteer counselors in the Rhinelander Relief Society, along with the 16 blankets.
