The smiles are in the bag

December 5, 2018
The Town Crier

The GFWC Ohio Austintown Jr. Women's League and Juniorettes recently completed a day of service sewing "smile bags" for the charity Operation Smile. Members donated fabric, ribbon, and their sewing talents to create these bags that will be filled with dental hygiene products and small toys. A small mirror was included so that children having undergone surgery to repair their cleft palates can see their new smiles. Under the direction of committee chairwoman, the club was able to make 50 bags that will then be sent overseas. More information and photos of this event can be found on Facebook at AJWL2014.
