We’re a little over the half way today

The weather is predicted to be a little on the hot side. 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
olive oil and balsamic vinegar, 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.
