Angel ornaments are for sale at the Oceanside Grandmothers to Grandmothers Extravaganza sale at Quality Resort Bayside. Jacquie Ostrow and some helpers make the ornaments now, though they were first made by Jan Stuart, a teacher in Africa who returned to Canada not long before AIDS became a major issue there. Her concern for her students led her to make the ornaments, said Ostrow, which Stuart sold for $7 each, raising $20,000 before she passed away. — Adam Kveton Photo
