Seasonal Friends: As you begin to pack up to return home, please consider leaving your unopened, un-expired, non-perishable food stuffs with the Westside Food Pantry. All indications are that this will be another rough winter for many year round residents, and this would be a great way to help the communities that you love. The non-perishables may be dropped off at St. John’s. Any questions, call Barbara Campbell at 244-9087.


Library Walk-a-thon: Sunday, September 27 at 12:15. You are invited to be part of our “Food Pantry-Plus” team. The money raised will benefit the SWH Library and represent our commitment to being a positive force in the community. To sign up or ask questions, call Cass Wright (244-5459) or Ann Benson (288-9892).


The Victory Garden is still producing. Please consider bringing some of your garden vegetables to add to our bounty. We are distributing on Wednesdays, so delivery to St. John's on Tuesday or Wednesday morning is ideal. Any questions—call Cass Wright at 244-5459. Pamela VanWechel is making jam and pickling items from the garden and would welcome any of the following items: white vinegar, sugar, Sure Jell, Knox unflavored gelatin, Gulf Wax, small jars (ie. baby food jars or juice glasses).


Prayer Shawl Ministry: Tuesday, September 8th at 2:30 p.m.


Green & Lean is a free series of monthly lectures which focuses on ways to save money and resources.  They have adopted a very pragmatic approach – no technical jargon, no complicated concepts, just straightforward information you can put to use in your own home or place of work. Next meeting will be Wednesday, September 16th at 7 PM, Eating Local, Organic & Cheap.  This event will feature a tasting of dishes made with locally grown ingredients. Held at St. John Episcopal Church; sponsored by ROOTs, St. John Episcopal Church, & Downeast Group of the Sierra Club. Contact Erika Shriner, 244-3532 for more information.


Office Hours: This week the office is open on Monday and Thursday from 8:30-2:30.
