Days for Girls International

Today I went with some of my Rotary friends to help with a project for Days for Girls International making cloth sanitary kits for young girls in impoverished countries. When I walked in, the lady in charge asked if I know how to use a sewing machine. I said yes but I haven't used one in more than 30 years. She sat me down and showed me what they were doing and it all came back to me just like riding a bicycle. However, in the two hours I was working, I think I made eight or nine bags. . . I kept thinking about how my sister Linda could have whipped out about 30 in the same amount of time. Great project though. I loved being part of it and being with Elizabeth Tilkian, Penny Leon, Alice Muntean, Sheri Polak and Diane Nelson among others.
