Sept. Update #2

1.  As many of you know the Lions Club organized a massive project this spring/summer.  To convert a hop field into a garden to plant and grow vegetables to be delivered to seniors and the food bank in our area.  Beneficiaries enjoyed a weekly bag of freshly picked vegetables along with seeing the cheerful volunteers who delivered them.  Behind the scenes were the coordinators, cultivators, pickers and doubtless many more unsung heros.  THANK YOU TO EVERYONE OF YOU for a providing a great service much appreciated by the seniors in the community.
