I am attaching the printed pattern for Seafarers Hats. It was decided at the board meeting to extend some of our outreach projects. Anyone can contribute to this effort, and your response will be appreciated. I will collect any finished hats at the November general meeting and drop them off at the International Seafarers Center. They will be distributed as Christmas presents to the visiting boats during the holiday season. Thanks, Lainie
