I received info about a special Mother’s Day gift idea that I thought I would share. Hunger Free Vermont is a statewide private non-profit that develops programs to prevent hunger & promote good nutrition for Vermont’s families, using education, technical assistance & advocacy. They work to increase access to federal child nutrition programs such as school meals, summer meals & childcare meals, plus they offer hands-on nutrition education & a cooking series. Check out www.hungerfreevt.org to see about donating in your mom’s name.
May looks like a busy & interesting month: Saturday, 5/5 – GreenUp Day starting at 8:00AM behind the Fire Station & Sunday, 5/6 – Howard Coffin’s Historical Society talk on the Civil War at the Town Building at 1:00 PM. The next Plymouth Community Garden meeting is Tuesday, 5/8, at 7 PM at the Town Building. Then the Strawberry Festival meeting will be Tuesday, 5/15 at 7:00 PM at the Poiriers. Just think – some folks are involved with several of these activities!
