Girls braid bracelets to raise money for memorial
WATERLOO (AP) — Supplies are spread out across the living room floor of the Minikus family home: brightly colored skeins of thread, bags full of cross stich floss, scissors, rulers.
Cousins Breann Minikus, 11, and Taylor Stefancik, 10, have a day off of school, but they are up early, working to add to a colorful pile of twisted, knotted and braided bracelets. So far this morning, they have made more than 100.
Initially, the girls started making the bracelets last fall and selling them to family and friends. They raised $60 that they donated to the reward fund for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case of slain cousins Lyric Cook-Morrissey and Elizabeth Collins of Evansdale.
