Cranes of Hope

(The actual program begins at 1:00, but you are invited to join us at 12:30 for a social time during which you can visit the library table, the demo corner, the Show and Share table, and have refreshments.)

Over the past several years many Colleague members have worked with the Cranes of Hope project. Cranes of Hope is a group of cancer survivors, their caregivers and supporters who get together monthly to make Artist Trading Cards for others battling cancer who are in need of a little hope and inspiration. The Colleagues are a perfect group to support this cause! Join us in this community service project to use our love of calligraphy and art and make unique gift treasures to be given to those in Minnesota going through challenges with all types of cancer. At the end of our day the Cranes of Hope organization will take the pieces of art we create and distribute them for us. We will have supplies available to make these cards but you may wish to bring things from your own treasure trove of art materials. Things you might wish to bring and share are: scissors, assorted colored gel pens (including black, gold or glitter!), black ink and pen with pointed or small oblique nib, your favorite monoline alphabet, washi tape, glue stick or narrow double faced tape.
