Last week, we had a great turnout. Despite the high temperature, we saw
several new faces as well as our faithful customers. For those that
aren’t aware, we do offer free water and lemonade; we gave out ten
gallons of lemonade last week. This week, Bill Woodard will be with us
to sharpen knives, mower blades and other tools. The parks and
recreation department and chamber of commerce are sponsoring the
children’s petting zoo. Our young entrepreneurs Sofia (11 years old)
and Savanna (7 years old), Sister’s Go Bananas, will be selling frozen
blueberry popsicles, frozen chocolate covered bananas w/ chopped
peanuts, and plain frozen chocolate covered bananas. Wanda Gray,
Sweetpeas Catering and Events, will be making up chicken salad lunch
baskets and turkey lunch boxes with bread or crackers aside and a
desert. She’ll be selling small containers of pimento cheese along with
her other delicious baked goods. Lucy Siddiqui, Youth Services Head,
from Gardendale Martha Moore Public Library, will be reading children’s
stories at 1 PM under the stage roof.
Next week, July 2nd, we’re celebrating Independence Day, early, by
having a “Recognition of Veterans” starting at noontime. Attending are
the Air National Guard Color Guard, Marine Corps League doing the Iwo
Jima reenactment, Gardendale’s Tiera Leftwich singing the National
Anthem, Chaplain Keith Taylor will speak regarding his tour in Iraq, and
other military guests. Following the event, a meal will be served to
any veteran and spouse served by our sponsor Good Shepherd Luther
Church. If you know any veteran, please tell them about this.
Bill Woodard will be attending sharpening knives, lawn mower blades and
other tools, and America’s First Credit Union will have their mobile ATM
unit available. Lucy Siddiqui will be reading patriotic children’s
stories at 1 PM.
We look forward to seeing “all y’all”, and we appreciate your patronage.
