Since Betty last reported on her knitting of kitty mats she has knitted 27 kitty mats and delivered them to the Nebraska Human Society. Betty invested 270 volunteer hours through the Heartland Pioneers Hook & Needles group to make the kitty mats.

Betty Golmanavich has been a member of the Hooks & Needles group since her and Jerry transferred to the Omaha Works with the closing of the Baltimore Works in the mid eighties. Betty and a group of about 20 ladies are still making items for charities in the metro area. Last week Betty gathered up the 70 kitty blankets she had made to deliver to the Nebraska Human Society. Her husband Jerry took her there after dinner where they met Pam Wiese that accepted the kitty blankets and thanked her for the donation. Jerry was the photographer.
