The Baileys Harbor Historical Society (BHHS) is featuring Mitters Knitters in the display cases at the Baileys Harbor Town Hall. Gibraltar seventh- and eighth-grade teacher Lauren Mitterman is teaching her students how to knit, crochet and weave, and they are known as the Mitters Knitters.
On display are student creations that include scarves, booties, hats, afghans, an octopus and even a dog sweater. The BHHS would like to commend Mrs. Mitterman for inspiring young people to learn and enjoy old-fashioned crafts. The BHHS would also like to applaud the young ladies and gentlemen for putting aside their electronic devices and being willing to learn an old pastime that has resulted in quite a productive endeavor.
If anyone has extra knitting needles, crochet hooks or yarn that they would like to donate to the young knitters, a donation bin is next to the craft display at the Town Hall.
The Northern Door Health and Wellness Ministry continues its Community Health Information Programs with a program titled "What's In A Label," covering the importance of reading food labels.
Nicole DeMeuse, registered dietitian, will present valuable information for those with restricted diets (such as diabetics), those with sodium restrictions and gluten-free needs or anyone interested in knowing more about what they are eating. The discussion will include how to spot hidden things on the labels, how to interpret the ingredient list and some discussion on supplements.
This program will be held at 1:30 p.m. Sunday in the Education Room at Scandia Village in Sister Bay. It is free and open to the public.
The 25th annual Brown Trout Tournament will run through tomorrow in Baileys Harbor . You might want to go down to the official weigh-in station at the fire station and see some of the potential prize winners come in and look at the leader board.
