To help raise awareness and celebrate Heart Month, members of Hannibal Regional Auxiliary knitting committee are making red hats for all babies born in the month of February.   Volunteers knitted and crocheted red hats to empower moms to live heart healthy lives and to help their children do the same.

Nancy Cruse is the Chairman of the Knitting Committee and she commented “We are working to raise awareness and show support to Hannibal Regional (Hospital) for a healthy lifestyle. We also love to make items for the newborn babies so it was a win-win. We hope families will enjoy these during the month of February.”

Other committee members working on the project are Jackie Schnelle, Sharon Laser, Jane Bleigh, Anne Cary, Roberta Thomas, Marie Wolpers, Beth Hansmeier, Brenda Higdon and Priscilla Foreman.  Pictured from left to right with some of the Auxiliary’s Hats from the Heart are Beth Hansmeier,  Nancy Cruse and Brenda Higdon.
