‘Chase the Chill’ invites pedestrians to Triangle Park

Recently, the railings surrounding Triangle Park in Emmaus were festooned with over 300 hand knitted and crocheted scarves provided by members of the Emmaus Lioness Lions Club. This rainbow of scarves invited pedestrians to come, look and wear home. Each scarf bore a hang tag stating it was free for the taking.

The Emmaus Lioness Lions Club is supporting Lions Club International’s celebration of its 100th year by giving back to the community. In addition to scarves, passersby could choose from a variety of handmade winter hats.
