KENTON BROOKS/Muskogee Phoenix
From left, Mary Preston, of Park Hill, and Debbie Thurber of Tahlequah, cut patterns out of paper. Those patterns will be used to cut blue jeans to make shoes for children and adults in Third World countries to prevent jiggers, a parasite that lives in or on the skin. The women were part of a shoe-cutting party in the Grant Foreman Room at the Muskogee Public
Library on Thursday.
