RAPID CITY, S.D. - A group of knitters from the Echo Ridge Good Samaritan Society Independent Living Facility took to the streets of downtown Rapid City on Monday to place handmade scarves on the presidents statues.
“We’ve been gathering for about an hour, developing friendships and knitting and are doing other crafts, knitting these scarves,” resident Jan Albright said.
“Our community where we live at Echo Ridge is small and it just gets you to know everybody a little bit better. We sort of take care of each other. These ladies have been knitting pur shawls, baby blankets – all things like that, and they’re all donated back into the community,” Albright said.
