Members of the Zonta Club of Hilo, Hilo Hongwanji Betsuin Big Island Women Association, Church of the Holy Apostles, Daughters of the American Revolution and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3830-Pahoa Auxiliary in late August presented lap-blankets and “fidget or busy blankets” for veterans and dementia patients at the Okutsu Veterans State Home in Hilo.

Bill Miller, president of discount Fabric warehouse donated materials for this ongoing labor of love for many Big Island stitchers who regularly donate blankets, wheelchair bags and walker bags to the state home.
