Mark your calendar and save the second Saturday of every month! BreastFest at Mimi’s – Every second Saturday of the month, RoL meets for breakfast at Mimi’s Cafe in Ventura, CA. There is a short informative program, an information table and a CLOCS Table to celebrate the lives of cancer survivors with a take home item each month.
February 10, 2018 –
On odd months, every second Saturday, immediately following the RoL BreastFest, we meet around 11 a.m. to create items which help us support our community of thrivers and their support systems. We knit, crochet, quilt, sew, sketch, paint, write or create other projects. Those who want to learn how to knit, crochet or learn a craft are invited. For more information, email ROL@RibbonsVentura.org.
FABRIC CUTTERS, SEWERS & FABRIC are NEEDED for our Care Bag Project. If you, or someone you know, would like to participate in this meaningful community project and donate fabric and sewing items, cut fabric, sew bags or make donations to this project, kindly contact us by emailing us your specific interest at ROL@RibbonsVentura.org or place a donation via Paypal.
LETTER OF APPRECIATION
November 14, 2017
This past weekend was a healing one for me. A big part of that is the RoL and Create4Life sessions.
When I googled local places to contribute crocheted or quilted items, early this year, your website convinced me that your organization is dear to my outlook on life. Over the years I have had my fair share of setbacks, and the positivity exuded by your group is a wonderful salve. As a veteran of different types of support groups, and their different approaches, I find myself drawn to laughter and sheer joy of life that pervades the Ribbons of Life meetings and gatherings.
I know there was a reason that we have all been placed together. Thank you for your love and support. I am so lucky!
Sincerely, Ginger W.
