We are excited to continue this work at CPS and CIS!

To celebrate spring and Mother’s Day, the Central knitters knitted flowers (including the stems) and painted cardboard vases. The pictured flowers were gifted/donated to Supportive Living Washington for their residents to enjoy, and they were beyond thrilled to receive these from Central. Students also knitted an additional flower for their mom for Mother’s Day! Way to continue to spread joy through the art of knitting!
