The Lily M. Foundation--including Lily's Friends--is finally legally official. We received our incorporation notice on October 22, 2007. The work we hope to accomplish through the foundation can now proceed in earnest.

Please note that while the foundation is a nonprofit corporation, we are not yet tax-exempt. That is the next step, and I have been warned that it can be a long--very long--process.

I'd like to thank Laura Wilson-Martos for designing the blog button/logos for Lily's Friends and Lily Pads. They have received a lot of positive comments.

I belong to an online group called Knittinghope. Each month a charitable cause is selected, and we knit things the group needs. Lily Pads, a project of Lily's Friends, is December's charity. We will receive Lily Pads and squares to make Lily Pads from the generous knitters who participate in the group.

The next issue of Lily's Friends will be out November 12. If you'd like a copy, send an e-mail to
