Lethbridge is celebrating its 100th Birthday this year. Blankets is making a banner of 9 inch cotton squares with names and city of our friends and supporters through out Canada. We are also being joined by others around the world that wish to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY LETHBRIDGE and show support of Blankets For Canada in this way.
Our first goal is 1290 squares as that is how many blankets Lethbridge gifted in 2005 then we would like to make the full 62,000 squares and that would show how many squares we made in Lethbridge in 2005. When we reach the 62,000 squares the banner will be about 9 kms long. So help us reach this goal. Send in squares for yourself and family and talk to others to join also. Church groups and clubs are already doing this and they will be sewn together in a group as much as possible. Look at just a few that have come in so far (coming soon).
