Knitting purple hats for a good cause

The Chateau Cornwall Knitting Club presented 140 purple hand-knitted baby hats to Linda Lanthier (front right), Program Manager, and public health nurse Diane Reunions (front left) at the Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU). The hats were knitted for the EOHU’s “Period of PURPLE Crying” program, and will be distributed to newborns in local birthing hospitals. Parents will also receive information about how crying during the first months of life is a normal part of infant development, and how to comfort a baby. For more information about the Period of PURPLE Crying program, please call the EOHU’s Health Line at 613-933-1375 or 1 800 267-7120.
