NEWBERRY — In the Bible, people may have read about Joseph and his coat of many colors. But did those colors have special meaning or was his coat just made from many different pieces of cloth? The answer to that, we don’t know.
However, there is a special afghan made of many colors where each color has a special meaning. Has this peaked interest about what this afghan may be?
Gayle Lindley, a cancer survivor and member of WELCA (Miriam Circle) at the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer has made such an afghan. Lindley researched the colors of cancer and found there to be many different colors that represented various forms of cancer.
She moved forward in purchasing the different colors of yarn and began working on what has turned out to be an afghan, not only of beauty, but also with very special meaning. It took many hours for her to complete what WELCA calls its Let’s Lick Cancer afghan.
The drawing for the afghan will take place on Sunday, Feb. 10 at WeLCA’s soups and cornbread luncheon fund raiser in the Family Life Center at the Lutheran church.
Anyone who wishes to make a donation to become eligible to win the Let’s Lick Cancer afghan may call the church office at 276-2003 or Anne Caughman at 276-8056. Tickets for the soup and cornbread luncheon may be purchased by call the church or Caughman.
