disaster preparedness

A few of us are trying to help each other get prepared for potential disasters/emergencies.

We are using information from the Red Cross as well as working on compiling lists of neighborhood residents, special needs, special talents/abilities, etc. so that in times of need we can efficiently help ourselves and each other.

If you're interested in what/how we are doing call or contact and we'll share whatever we have.

Opening Day Celebrations kick off at 3:00 on Wednesday, April 27, with live music from market favorites Squirrel Butter (members of the Tall Boys of square dancing fame!)

market signs -- need your help

We need someone to put out the "Farmers Market Today" signs at the intersections surrounding the market. The most important thing about this job is that the signs are out by 8:30 am on Wednesday mornings.

Past sign-putter-outers say they can easily get the job done in 30 minutes. We have a heavy duty cart for ya - no car required. We hope to make it worth your time with a modest but useful market stipend.

Give us a call at 632-5234. Thanks!
