Thank you to all who helped make this Community Day possible!

The Community Day is a little more than a week away and it looks like it will be a complete success. Shelley's program really will give the people of Myra nutritious feed to eat late summer and fall. With the HUGE donation of 5000 seed packets from Heifer International and another 1500 packets from donors like you all - quite a few gardens are going to be planted. A donor donated 1200 strawberry plants, 800 tomato seed packets, 800 pairs of garden gloves, rakes for the community garden, 110 garden 3 piece sets, 40 pounds of beans, 5 pounds of corn, 10 pounds of seed potato's and all the napkins, tablecloths, plates, bowls, plastic ware, cups, lemonade, cookie mixes, coffee and condiments for the big day.

Mission of Faith will be on hand to assist with the cooking, children's games and assisting with the day. St Luke's Church generously donated the hamburger and hot dogs as well as new tillers to till gardens. Lois and Ralph had a pig just for the occasion.

Lois will be handing out 200 baby chickens that day to all who had signed up for the Poultry program.

A complete canning kit will be given out as a door prize.

Thanks to all of you who sent in seeds and really made this possible for families to grow their own food.
