Church crocheters have adult day care ‘covered’

Hunterdon County Democrat and NJ.com - November 19, 2018

Jill Sibilla, a member of the congregation at Grace Covenant Baptist Church in Flemington, wanted to make a difference in the community this holiday season. So, she asked fellow parishioners if they would be interested in helping crochet lap blankets, which would be given to folks at the Flemington Adult Day Care Center.

She received a positive response; some volunteers were relatively new at crocheting, others had more experience.

The seasoned crocheters and those relatively new to the craft completed about a dozen blankets, which are ready for delivery by Thanksgiving.

Grace Covenant Baptist Church is located ta 35 Court St. For more information, go to gcbcnj.squarespace.com.
