Kiwanis of Manchester commemorated the occasion with a service project creating "no-sew blankets" for infants and packaging personal care items. Both will be distributed to shelters and non-profits serving those in need. Our thanks to Michelle Chretien and Jocelyn Collins who arranged for a workspace at their employer, RMS Mortgage and to the Kiwanians who donated materials.
