11,300 and Counting

Happy Veteran's Day.  For all veterans out there, including my dad and my husband, thank you for your service and sacrifice.  If you are the family member of a veteran, thank you as well. 

Today, I also want to give a shout out to everyone who contributed one or more scarves to the Super Scarves effort.  So far, over 11,300 scarves have been turned in.   And they will continue to roll in through the end of the month. The goal was a measly 8,000.  Well we sure showed them - I heard some neysayers at the beginning of this effort who just knew the whole thing was going to flop.  We showed them.  So proud to be a part of this effort and can't wait to see all those scarves at the Super Bowl here in Indy in just a couple of months. 

Displays of the scarves are going up all around town.  Here's one showcase at the wonderful  Children's Museum of Indianapolis.

Isn't that a great display?  Look closely  and you can see at least one Hash Marks and one Block and Tackle in the bunch here.  Now just imagine what 10,000+ are going to look like all over this city.     
And don't forget - more scarves are needed for the 2012 Special Olympics USA Project.  Any of the super scarves patterns would work for these scarves as well.
