    Getting your garden ready for the warm weather

    Gardener Dicki King tells us that January is time to focus on getting ready for spring and we should take time to plan for the next few weeks. There is really much to be done.  The first of February is a good time to select new bushes and trees for planting. (January 28, 2011, Page 2B)

                  New Pantry service

                  Each first and third Tuesday from 10 a.m. until noon, Pantry volunteers will assist the Department of Human Services in helping clients make application for food stamps. SNAP is the new program name (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program).

All Pantry clients who are not currently receiving food stamps are encouraged to visit The Pantry on any first or third Tuesday for personal assistance. For more information and to volunteer, call Jim Stephens at 801-3056. (January 28, 2011)
