Tie a knot for veterans at Pleasanton's 1st Wednesday tonight


Hope Hospice is asking the public to tie a knot for veterans tonight at Pleasanton's First Wednesday Street Party that starts at 6 p.m. on downtown streets.

During the past year, Hope Hospice volunteers have made plush lap blankets adorned with patriotic symbols -- the American flag, stars and stripes and the American bald eagle -- for the organization's military veteran hospice patients.

The project was started by Pleasanton resident Thais Carlucci, a longtime Hope Hospice home care volunteer, as a thank-you to Hope Hospice's veteran patients.

Community members can join in on the project by stopping by the Hope Hospice booth to help tie knots on the fringes that border each blanket. No special skills are needed. For information, contact director of volunteers Jill Biggs at 829-8770.
