My fondest memory of my grandmother was the needlepoint bag she took everywhere. She would bring it into doctor’s offices and DMVs-anywhere there would be a wait time. She would talk to me and work on a quilt or pillowcase.
If you know a mature citizen that has those artistic traits, let them know about the ornament contest that the Mountain View Senior Center is holding. They are looking for handmade Christmas tree ornaments and the winners will receive gift cards. They will award prizes in three categories: Most Original, Most Traditional, and Most Detailed.
They are limiting it to 3 entries per person and all ornaments must be turned in to the front desk no later than November 20 at 10am. The winners will be announced at the Holiday Bazaar at 2pm. Be sure to include names and phone numbers with every entry or they will be disqualified. Please contact the Senior Center at (650) 903-6330 for additional information.
