A beautiful day is in store

The weather is predicted to be unusually cooler than normal for
tomorrow. The Gardendale Kiwanis Club will be doing children’s story
telling at 11.00 AM near the command center. We’ll have a variety of
seasonal produce, vegetables and fruit; corn, squash, okra, tomatoes,
string beans, peaches, apples, cantaloupes, watermelon, and more.
There’ll be vendors selling muscadine juice and jelly, olive oil and
balsamic vinegar, a variety of fried pies, honey, eggs, and plants.
Due to the early hot weather, there will not be any nectarines. As
stated in previous messages, 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. We
thank those of you that have been kind enough to donate needed food.
Please remember to let our sponsors, America’s First Federal Credit
Unit; Scott Cantrell State Farm Insurance; and John Deer Dealer
TriGreen Equipment, know you’ve seen this. America’s First Federal
Credit Union will have their mobile ATM unit on the grounds; also,
there’s an ATM unit inside the civic center. Please come out and
support our vendors and growers; see you tomorrow.
