Blanket statement

Eh? loves nothing better than to wrap up in a warm blanket on a cold winter’s day. But what about people in the area who have nothing to keep them warm?

That’s the impetus for Project Warmth, a fun event with a purpose at 5 p.m. Oct. 11 at the Virginia Elks Club.

The folks at Range Mental Health Center tell us the gala will feature gourmet appetizers, dancing to the music of Pulse, raffles, auctions and games. The cost is $25 per person, and donations of new or gently used blankets and quilts are encouraged.

Tickets are available at the Elks Club, the mental health center’s Bell Building or by calling Susan at (218) 780-7115.
