Starting : Wednesday, September 11, 2019 
Milk Dress 2 This hardworking group collects plastic milk bags, cuts them into strips and strings them together to make plarn (plastic yarn).  The plarn is then either crocheted or woven into Milk Mats, which are sent to the Kawartha Mission for distribution by Canadian Food for Children to third world countries, and to reserves in Northern Ontario.
