The 4th Annual Maddie Thums Memorial Sew-a-thon was held March 3 at the Colby Public Library. From 1-10 p.m., supporters stopped in to sew blankets for St. Joseph Hospital. That day, 111 blankets and chenille taggy blankets were completed. When all blankets are finished, 125 will be delivered to the hospital in Marshfield where Maddie had been a nurse for many years. A delicious dinner was enjoyed, sponsored by Forward Financial Bank. Fabrics were purchased through the Thrivent Action Team program. Coordinators of the sew-a-thon were Pamm Yessa, Vicky Calmes, and Becky Schmelzer.
