Today is the last day this month to order grocery cards. You can buy cards for the following month and pick up the ones you ordered last month. Remember, the discount we earn from purchasing cards in bulk from Giant, Stauffers, and Weis provide food for the Saturday Breakfast downtown once a month. Helping others is easy, as well as a wonderful thing!
Have leaves? We would love to use them as mulch for the garden! If so, please put them in a bag and leave them by the black fence in the front parking lot.
