Coffee with Verona senior center director

Sixteen community members attended the a coffee hour at the senior center on Dec. 2, 2019.

If you are seeking to creatively help your community, a sewing, knitting and crocheting group might be of interest.

From 10-11 a.m. every first Tuesday of the month starting on August 3, community members are invited to put their talents and compassion into action by using their needles or hooks to create items like hats, mittens, quilts and tote bags, according to the Verona Senior Center newsletter.

The group meets at the center, 108 Paoli St.

The projects are a part of the Dane County Retired Senior Volunteer Program’s Group Projects and Homeworker Program, also known as Hometown Helpers, the newsletter states.

The Helpers’ mission is to enhance warmth, safety and comfort for those less fortunate in the community by donating the creations to local nonprofit agencies, according to the newsletter.

For information, contact project coordinator Kate Seal at (608) 310–7280 or kseal@rsvpdane.org.
