      > Hi, friends. When you are knitting and sewing, don't forget to make an
      > extra item or two for charitable giving. There are many opportunities
      > to donate items this year, including our own Mitten Tree project (as
      > pictured on the front page of the Yahoo Group). Over the next few days
      > I will be sending some info about project ideas.
      > Today I am highlighting our Operation Toasty Toes project. We have one
      > of the earliest-formed groups of this project. Since 2001, we have
      > sent more than a thousand pairs of slippers to troops stationed
      > overseas. Read more about it at our website, on this page:

      > In 2001 TV personality Jason Davis came to Rocking Horse Farm and
      > taped a live segment that has been shown on stations across the

      > In the past few weels we have received shipment of several parcels

      > local coordinator to be shipped in the next shipment.
      > You can participate by donating money for postage, yarn, or completed
      > slippers. They can be hand knit, crochet, or machine knit.
      > Let's make it a happy season for everyone by continuing to be
