The weather is predicted to be a hot today and it might be to your
advantage to shop early. 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, peaches, apples, cantaloupes, watermelon, and
more. There’ll be vendors selling a variety of fried pies, honey,
eggs, and plants. 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, and 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
today.
