    Wool Blanket Giveaway

    Blankets, we’ve got blankets, we’ve got lots and lots of blankets and we’re
    giving them away. Yes, the wool blankets have been in storage for a number of
    years (emergency preparedness program supplies) and its time to repurpose
    them. Actually, were trying to find Preston residents that would be interested in
    accepting a wool blanket. They most likely will need a good cleaning when you
    take them home too. If your interested in taking a green wool blanket, or two,
    please leave your name and telephone number at the Senior Affairs Office 860-
    887-5581 ext. 6. I will make arrangements to bring the blankets to the senior
    center for pick-up. Remember, they are absolutely FREE and are waiting to keep
    you warm and toasty.
