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).


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.
