----Aylmer Legion & Friends knitting for the homeless
Two members of the Aylmer Legion, Rose Regimbald and Elisabeth Couture met Mrs. Guertin last winter during the “Legion Sock Drive” for the homeless shelter. She was moved and inspired by the initiative.
Sadly, Mrs. Guertin passed away on April 14, 2020. Shortly after her passing and much to their surprise, the Aylmer Legion members received a phone call from Louise’s family to let them know that Louise – an avid knitter – donated all of her knitting wool to them (four large bagful) to continue the sock drive and knitting project.
A group of volunteers used the donated wool and knitted many hats, scarves, mittens, socks, slippers, etc. and on Tuesday December 8 they donated the items to “Le Gite Ami” and to those in need in the area.
