Also, we are gearing up for the fair. Debra Marcelle-Coney sent out a sign up genius. We still need more volunteers. January 8th we are setting up in the Sunday Store. It is being set up as a Green Market, therefore we can sell fruit and baked goods. The Fair runs from Jan 14-30. Come and join us, bring your fruit baked goods.

Happy New Year!
