Cape Breton Post - - OUR COMMUNITY -

Sid­ney Reid, co-founder of the Knit Fit Knit-a-thon, bun­dles up a statue of Syd­ney’s founder, J.F.W. Des Bar­res, with some hand-knit­ted items to pro­mote the up­com­ing char­i­ta­ble event. The knit-a-thon has be­come an an­nual event that started three years ago and has led to the do­na­tion of more than 500 knit­ted items to com­mu­nity mem­bers in need. This year’s event will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the McCon­nell Li­brary in Syd­ney and the Bad­deck Li­brary. For more in­for­ma­tion or to ob­tain a pledge sheet, visit www.cbrl.ca; www.knit­fitkni­tathon.word­press.com or phone your lo­cal li­brary.
