This is Jay Serdula, one of our regular participants in the Kingston Knitting Circle that meets at Chapters each month, and he is also a regular fixture at the Thursday evening Knit and Chat at the store. He is in the process of training for a swim across Lake Ontario this summer to raise money for the study of Asperger's Syndrome, but as part of his training he is doing a swim this Friday, (yes, tomorrow!) across Navy Bay which is the body of water between Fort Henry and RMC. This chilling experience is in support of the United Way and Jay will be leaving from Fort Henry at noon (sharp) and will be arriving at the SE corner of the RMC peninsula, at St Lawrence Pier. The entire swim takes about 5 minutes so if you're interested in going to cheer Jay on, be sure not to be late.
If you're interested in knowing more about Jay's summer swim across Lake Ontario, we have a poster at the store which has contact information.
WOOL-TYME Kingston is proud to be participating in the Canadian Liver Foundation' s newest fundraiser. They are putting on a great afternoon and evening that would be a treat for every woman in the city: "What a Girl Wants" is an afternoon filled with fashion, demos, health and wellness info, door prizes and gift bags topped off with a dinner, fashion show and dessert. We will have a sales table and will be teaching and demonstrating knitting and needlefelting.
It all takes place on Sunday May 4th, 2008 at Zorbas Grand Ball Room from 2-10pm and tickets are available at the WOOL-TYME Kingston store or by registering at http://www.whatagirlwantskingston.ca/ . You deserve a little luxury and it's all for a good cause.
And one last reminder that we will also have a table at the upcoming Needlecraft show and sale of the Cataraqui Guild of Needlecraft Arts on Saturday, April 26th at St Margaret's United Church Hall across from the Kingston Centre Loblaws. It's a real treat...hope to see you there.
