For the August giveaway, we were able to serve 143 people and had 35 volunteers.  Thank you to everyone who came out to help!

This last give away we tried out a volunteer sign-in sheet.  It went so well look for it again next time.  Sign-in is for all who are new and want to help behind the scenes.  Find the sign when you arrive.  Thank you in advance.

Hope is a strange invention — by Emily Dickinson

Hope is a strange invention —
A Patent of the Heart —
In unremitting action
Yet never wearing out —

Of this electric Adjunct
Not anything is known
But its unique momentum
Embellish all we own —

Another successful giveaway!
