Knit Project for C.A.R.E.

Our Escapee RV Club have “graduating classes”, were you “graduate” from working to fulltime RVing.  Jim and I are part of the Class of 2007.  We communicated with our other classmates for several months before we hit the road and then met many of them at Quartzsite, Arizona, in January 2008, after we’d been on the road seven months. 

Since then we’ve seen many of our classmates as we’ve traveled around the country.  Many of them have stopped and stayed with us in our campground in South Fork during the summer or visited us in Alamosa. 

Our Class of 2007 is having a reunion in Quartzsite to celebrate our fifth year of being on the road. Part of our week together will be an auction to raise money for C.A.R.E. (Continuing Assistance for Retired Escapees). It’s a non-profit organization that provides adult day-care for Escapee members and relies on donations to operate.  Escapee members contribute at rallies and most gatherings of members. 

So I knitted a hat and scarf set to be auctioned off.  Here is what it looks like.


Linda Mossman was nice enough to model the set to get an idea of what it look like on.

I hope the knit set makes some good money for C.A.R.E.

Remember, you are loved.
