The 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students of St. Elizabeth Elementary School and four of the residents at Arrowood Senior Care gathered together at Saint Elizabeth on Thursday, February 1, 2018 to make plarn. Plarn is plastic yarn that is crocheted into a mat (bed) for the homeless. Plastic bags from the supermarkets are folded and then cut into strips. The strips are connected and wound into a ball. The students and residents spent an hour and a half working on this nationwide project. The mission today was to have the students and residents work together in an effort to help the less fortunate. Being stewards of God’s earth by recycling plastic bags affirms our commitment to living our faith. Mary Ann Sedlacek, a parishioner of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary Church, and Mrs. Marlene Pennington, teacher at Saint Elizabeth Elementary School, spearheaded this event. We hope to work with Arrowood Senior Care again in the near future. See pictures in the Gallery.
