We’ll be setting up in the parking lot

Tomorrow, the weather is predicted eventually be stormy, so we’ll be
setting up in the parking lot. As a reminder, on June 27th, we’ll have
the annual Veteran’s Recognition program starting at 12 noon. The
event is scheduled to be held outdoors. The Marine Corps League will
serve as the color guard and do the Iwo-Jima reenactment. We’ll have a
guest speaker from the Birmingham VAMC. A free meal will be offered to
all veterans, city employees, and those members of the market. This
market is a Christian outreach to the community; likewise, Good
Shepherd Lutheran Church operates the North Jefferson Food Bank as
another outreach. There’ve been many people seeking help and the
shelves are almost bare, so the farmers market is asking for
assistance from the customers to donate the following needed items:
saltine crackers, instant grits & oatmeal, canned meat, peanut butter
& jelly, ketchup, mustard, mayo, complete pancake mix, pasta, noodles
& sauce, boxed powder milk, deluxe mac-n-cheese, mashed potato
packets, toilet paper (4 pk), instant white rice, soups (chicken
noodle, tomato, vegetable), applesauce (in jar), fruit cups, chunky
soups with meat, laundry & dish detergents, PB/cheese crackers,
spaghetti O’s/ravioli, toothpaste/deodorant, and single roll paper
towels. We’d appreciate all the help we can get. Please remember to
let our sponsors, America’s First Federal Credit Unit; Scott Cantrell
State Farm Insurance; and John Dealer TriGreen Equipment, know you’ve
seen this. Please come out and support our vendors and growers; see
you tomorrow.
