Knitting and Crochet Club at Hillside: For the 5th year, Hillside Elementary is offering a Knit and Crochet Club for all students in 3rd through 6th grade. Participation in the club is bursting at the seams this year and the organizers are desperately looking for more volunteers to help teach the basics of knitting and crocheting to this enthusiastic group of girls and boys. The club is free to all students, which is especially important to the children from lower-income families. If you like to knit or crochet and would like to be a part of this exciting group, please contact Rose Brandsgard at 515-229-7953. The club meets on Mondays from 4:00 to 5:15 in the art room at Hillside. The current session runs through March 5.
