When Dorothy Tremblay moved into Oak Park Village, she brought her sewing machine with her and she has been putting it to good use.
By this weekend, she will have made her 1,000th mask.
Many have gone to staff and residents. Now she is sewing masks for people in rehab centers.
She welcomes donations of 100 percent cotton material, white thread and elastic. The thread must be white. People are invited to drop off donations at the home, 17010 Old Covington Hwy., Hammond.
Known affectionately as “Mrs. Dot,” she is 93 years old.
