The Barabara Sommer Memorial Award  -- Barabara Sommer was a beloved member of Christ Child Society of Toledo from 1995-2003. Barb was very organized, a retired school teacher, An knitter extraordinaire! She chaired our layette program for several years and started our Angel layette program in September 2001. Barb knit as many as 75 sweaters a year for the Layette program. In her honor, we framed one of the last sweaters she knit, and it hangs in our space at the Mercy Professioal Building. This award was established in 2004 and honors a new member who has made a significant contribution to the Chapter. This award circulates and is given at the Spring Closing Luncheon in May.
