Circle of Love

Contributed by Dana Travis

Circle of Love is a knitting and crochet group that Peggy King started in April of 2018, at Primrose Retirement Community of Wasilla. The group makes prayer shawls for those who are in the hospital, on hospice, or injured. Peggy states she's always been a member of a prayer shawl group, and when she saw Primrose didn’t have one, she knew she had to start one.

When I met the group on Thursday, they had over 35 prayer shawls ready to take out to the hospice patients in the Palmer hospital!

The group makes the shawls, then meets once a month to pray over them and hand package them. Members of Kings Chapel Church then help distribute the shawls to those who need them.

If you are interested in joining this group, they welcome anyone who wants to help! The Circle of Love meets the second Thursday of each month, at 889 North Elkhorn Dr, at Primrose Retirement in the Gardenside Café, from 2pm to 4pm. If you are interested in joining, participating, or helping in any way, please call (907) 373-5500.
