To help raise awareness and celebrate Heart Month, members of Hannibal Regional Auxiliary have started a new program by knitting and crocheting red hats. The red hats will be given out to babies born in February at Hannibal Regional Hospital. Volunteers knitted and crocheted red hats to empower moms to live heart healthy lives and to help their children do the same. “We are working to raise awareness and show support to Hannibal Regional for a healthy lifestyle. We also love to make items for the newborn babies so it was a win-win!” shares Nancy Cruse, Chairman of the Knitting Committee. “We hope families will enjoy these during the month of February.” Other committee members are Jackie Schnelle, Jane Bleigh, Beth Hansmeier, Brenda Higdon, Anne Cary, Roberta Thomas, Marie Wolpers and Priscilla Foreman.
