Blenheim Ladies Lovingly Sew Burden Bears for Those Facing Serious Illness'
Blenheim Ladies Group Stitches 'Burden Bears' with Love and Compassion
If you show up Monday mornings at 11 A.M. in the basement of St.Mary's Catholic Church in Blenheim, this group of 11 dedicated ladies will probably put you to work.They assemble weekly to stitch together small handmade bears that come with a tiny quilt, and a poem that communicates that someone cares and loves the recipient. They are given to people who are facing serious lifr threatening illness.
The group is the brainchild of Marguerite Santarossa and to date they have made75 Burden Bears since May. Santarossa and her friend Dorothy Amos co-founded the Burden Bears at the Hospice of Windsor and Essex County in 2003. The pair had learned about the Burden Bears while in Florida and brought the idea home to Windsor with them. After moving to Blenheim, Santarossa started making the bears for VON geranium House in Chatham-Kent. The volunteers came to help and after discovering that most of them were from the Blenheim area, they re-located to the Church basement of St. Mary's in Blenheim. In addition to support from the VON, the Catholic Women's League also donate funds to help with the project.Unused fabrics, thread and even a used sewing machine have been donated to help make the bears. A lot of thought goes into each bear, as the ladies try to match the fabric to the personality and interests of the recipient. The bears are currently given to the VON of Chatham-Kent's Geranium House, the Supportive Care Services and Kid's Circle and will be expanded to include the new Chatham-Kent Hospice.

Where is the housing market headed? Nobody can accurately predict but all indications are that 2014 will be a good year in the Real Estate Industry and in Chatham-Kent. If you are a buyer, then, now is the time to get pre-approved and start the process. If you are a seller, then it is an equally good time for you to investigate the market.

Baby Boomers,those born between the years 1947 and 1964 are a force to be reconned with.
