Project Linus of East Tennessee is thrilled to be participating in the Lavender Festival at Jackson Square in Oak Ridge this year on June 15 from 8 AM to 3 PM.

Here is how you can help.

Make items to sell at the table. We are looking for small items preferably in lavender, green, earth, floral, etc. type prints and colors. Please have all items to a blanket drop off location or make arrangements with Deb by June 7th. See pictures of suggested items below or on Facebook.
